Advent


This year, Calvary United Methodist Church has an exquisite Advent and Christmas Season planned for the enjoyment and spiritual enlightenment of all who attend. This year during Advent we will be conducting a Reverse Advent Calendar, so come, participate and see how we can change lives.

The season began on Sunday, November 27 at the worship services with the lighting of the Advent Candle "Hope" and continued with the Family Advent Night celebration with crafts, activities and a taco dinner.

During Advent, each Sunday morning worship service will include the traditional lighting of the Advent Wreath Candles.  Calvary Youth and Young Adults will present thought provoking readings, videos, and music focused on the Advent Candle themes of Hope, Joy, Peace, and Love.

Sunday, December 4 is the 2nd Sunday of Advent. As the first Sunday of the month this will be Communion Sunday. The Advent Wreath is Peace. The sermon title is “Peaceful Predators” and the scripture focus is Isaiah 11:1-10.

Sunday, December 11 is the 3rd Sunday of Advent. The Advent Wreath is Joy. The sermon title is “Of Justice and Joy” and the scripture focus is Luke 1:39-55

Sunday, December 18 is the 4th Sunday of Advent. The Advent Wreath is Love. The Loose Change Offering will be going to the Pastor’s Discretionary Fund, which is used to help those seeking help and support. The sermon title is “The Faithful Response of Love” and the scripture focus is Matthew 1:18-25.
