From Pastor Toensing

The Advent journey of waiting
and watching for Jesus’ birth and Christmas is actually a season that instructs us about our life of waiting for Jesus
to come the second and final time—but this time in power and glory! Our Wednesday Advent services will lead us on this journey of watching and waiting for Jesus to come—for His
birth AND for His glorious return.
