Advent marks a season of preparation and expectation, as Christians anticipate the birth of Jesus, and the coming reign of Love.  We hope you'll share in our activities this December and make this a month of wonder and beauty.  We're a radically diverse and fully inclusive church...where all are cherished exactly as they are!
