Advent, from the Latin adventus, meaning arrival or coming, is a chance for us to slow down and take time to prepare and remember the real meaning of Christmas. Advent is a season focused on waiting. If you let it, it can be a season of powerful spiritual preparation for encountering Jesus in ways you never have before.

Jesus Welcomes All
Matthew 11:28-30 The Message (MSG)
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
How did the message of Jesus get so messed up? How did Jesus’ beautiful message of unconditional love, grace and mercy get so misconstrued, complicated and exclusionary?
The focus of this group will be to learn what Jesus has to say about how we should live…why He came…and what He offers to each of us. This group will explore His life and teachings with the hope that what we learn we can practically apply in our lives.
This group will welcome and respect all people. We will understand that we may not believe and think the same way, however, we will not allow that to divide us. Instead, we will choose to celebrate the diversity of humankind, knowing that we are all God’s beautiful handiwork just as we are. We will check our pretense of perfection at the door and participate honestly and authentically.
Please come learn of Jesus with us and join in the discussion. Dress comfortably and casually and feel free to bring your favorite morning beverage. We will start gathering around 9:30 am and plan on getting started at 10 am.
We do not have any denominational affiliation. We simply believe that Jesus loves and welcomes All.
