The first Sunday of Advent.
After a tumultuous year, there is comfort to be found when we pause to read, pray, and reflect over the course of the Advent season in which believers eagerly anticipate the celebration of Christ’s birth.
The first Sunday of Advent gives us the opportunity to center our thoughts on hope.
It’s a beautiful chance to remember the hope God offers to our lost and dying world, and that He’s given us through Jesus.

Our Outreach Projects
In order to keep our parishioners and our community safe, many of our outreach ministries have had to cease due to restrictions put in place due to COVID-19. But the needs of the community have not gone away and we are asking for your faithfulness and love in action. If you have the means and are willing to continue supporting our food bank please add a little to your offertory and either mail it in or E transfer it to the parish. Your past support enabled us to send the food bank and the soup kitchen a financial donation in December. Please go to the DONATE page on this website to see how you can send your donation.

Requests for prayer
As the community works together to manage the effects of COVID-19 on all of our lives we are experiencing unprecedented and sometimes disturbing changes. For many people this is a cause for anxiety for some it’s a time of extra risk and vulnerability. Others may have worries about managing day-to-day life over the next few weeks. One way we can support one another is through ongoing specific prayer. If you have a particular need for prayer please email the clergy at. firstname.lastname@example.org We will be honored to include you in our ongoing prayer
