1st Sunday of Advent: Life Is an “Advent-sure”12-03-2023 |
I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope. Psalm 130:5
Life is an “Advent-sure” because we know how it all turns out! It is the coming of our Lord to be with us, in us and among us. His coming is a “given.” Christ’s presence in and through us is always a sure thing. Advent assures us again and again, whether we look like it, feel like it or even act like it, that Christ is the one who gifts us with the Advent-sure of a lifetime!READ MORE

Life Teen Meeting
Topic: More than Meets the Eye — Sacramentals
The goal of this night is for the teens to recognize sacramentals and to be able to distinguish between the seven sacraments and the many sacramentals. The night will also expose teens to a variety of sacramentals so that they will be more aware of them and their deeper meaning when they see them.
Topic: Sending Forth
This session presents the dismissal as a commissioning and explores how the Eucharist sends us out to serve others.
