The approach of Christmas is a difficult time for many, specially those who are grieving a loss in their lives. We want to invite you to our Advent Vespers service, in hopes that you may begin to find healing. This will be a candlelit service of early evening prayer, featuring an ensemble of strings and voice. Each week the service will focus on the stages of loss - Denial, Anger, Bargaining, and Depression - and how we believe God meets us on our Advent pilgrimage with the gifts of Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love to heal us and make us whole again. The third week's theme is "Joy Contains Bargaining."
