When something hits close to home, it affects us deeply. During the Advent and Christmas season, we journey through scriptures and rituals that are tender, heavy with emotion, and vulnerable. We carry the memories and truths of this season close to our hearts. Our Advent Close to Home theme from @sanctifiedart acknowledges the “already but not yet” tension of our faith: Emmanuel is with us, and yet, God’s promised day—our everlasting home—is not fully realized. It names our deep longing for God to come close to us.
Advent begins on Sunday, November 28th and ends on Christmas Eve. The season of Christmas continues through Epiphany on January 26th.
As we journey home, may we be comforted by the One who dwells intimately with us. May we expand safety and sanctuary for everyone wandering far from home. May we come home – wherever home is found – to live fully with joy, hope, and courage.
Our traditional service includes organ, hymns, congregational responses and prayers. Every part of worship is woven around the day’s Scripture and sermon.
The Praise service has an energy that is guided by Broadway’s Praise Band. Modern praise songs and new renditions of hymns highlight the music of the service. Everyone works together to bring the Bible reading and the message into focus.
