The Advent and Christmas message is that salvation is coming, and we can live in the knowledge that it is coming to all people. This knowledge allows us to behave with grace, charity, and hope - even in the midst of difficult and uncertain times. The greatest strength of Christians is that we have more than current events to determine our feelings and behaviors. We have a belief that God is our hope and salvation even when we face trials, tribulation, and suffering – and it is this faith that allows us to live with an attitude of gratitude in all circumstances.

We want to proclaim to a hurting world that God has given us the gift of Jesus Christ and  we respond with thankfulness, joy, and hope. We invite all people to join us in the

celebration of this good news during the Advent and Christmas season. We have been given a gift and salvation is on its way!
