Christmas at Grace

The Season of Advent

Joy to the World

This Advent at Grace, we will journey through the book of Isaiah as we prepare for Christmas. Advent is a season of joyful anticipation, and Isaiah invites us to prepare and look forward to the joyful coming of Christ to our world.

If you are looking for an Advent book study, here is one we recommend. You can find a link to purchase it here.

The TBD Adult Sunday School class (meets at 10am in the Library on the 2nd floor) plans to use this book during Advent, starting on Sunday, November 27. All are welcome to join in!

December 14 @ 6pm in the Grace UMC Sanctuary.

This is a service of remembrance and hope open to all who are grieving the loss of a loved one this season.

You are invited to bring a special tree ornament to use during the service.
