Prepare for Jesus' Birth

Posted by on

Church family, 

As the Advent season quickly approaches we wanted you to know that there are many ways that you can spiritually prepare for Jesus' birth. From the first Advent event, the Family Advent Night, to the very last one, on December 29 for Lessons and Carols, there are many ways to open your hearts during this season at University. We invite you to join us at the various concerts taking place around campus, on nights when we gather as a family and community, and during our services. In addition, this year our designated Christmas offerings and the loose plate giving we receive at our Christmas Eve Services will be sent beyond our walls to fund our partners in local schools forming and feeding children and their families.
