Advent Study: Journeying the Way of Love
Join us in "Journeying the Way of Love" as we await the coming of Christ by moving through the first two chapters of the Gospel of Luke. Luke’s gospel provides a pattern for understanding how we can live the Way of Love as individuals, as families and friends, as a community, and out in the world.

Advent Festival of Lessons & Carols
in the Barn at Pond House Farm
December 17 at 6:30 pm
You are invited to join us to experience Advent at its essence. We gather in an unlit, unheated hayloft to pray, read scripture, and sing hymns of the Advent season. It is deliberately cold and dark (bring a flashlight and wear warm clothing) in order to remind ourselves of the humble circumstances under which Christ came into the world. Hot beverages and Christmas cookies will be served by the fireplace inside the farmhouse after the service. All are welcome, but please know that the hayloft is upstairs and it is not wheelchair accessible.
For directions to the farm, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 231-598-9032.
