O Come, O Come Emmanuel

He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, ... he gave the right to become children of God. (John 1:11-12 NIV) 



Advent Wreath Readings

Advent wreaths are a wonderful way to help you recognize and celebrate the wonder of Christmas. This may be a tradition your family has enjoyed for years or perhaps you'll start an Advent Wreath tradition for the first time this year. 

Advent wreaths can be inexpensive to purchase or make. The circular wreath represent the eternity of God and four purple candles symbolize the royalty of the coming King. Complete your wreath with a white candle in the center to represent Christ, the light of the world.

Each Sunday in Advent, light one new candle (plus any previously lit) and read that week's Scripture together. Light the Christ candle on Christmas. The links below provide a reading for each candle lighting. 


Christmas Eve Candlelight Services

Come worship the newborn King during our Christmas Eve services of candlelighting and Holy Communion.

To ensure adequate space for everyone, attendance will be by reservation this year. The  1 pm service will be reserved for older adults and persons who are most vulnerable to COVID-19 or other illness.

Childcare for ages 0-5 will be offered at the 3 and 5 pm services.

The Wonder of Christmas Offering

Give in honor of the Newborn Messiah

During the Advent and Christmas Season a special offering is collected to support three of our partnerships that serve children locally, regionally and internationally. We are proud to support Embrace Florida Kids (United Methodist Children's Homes in Florida),  Anchorage Children's Home, and our efforts to build a permanent home for Wanyange Central United Methodist Church in remote Jinga, Uganda. Our hope and prayer is that we will collectively raise enough to give $10,000 to each program, for a total of $30,000. Thank you for your generous giving in honor of God's greatest gift to us, his precious son Jesus!
