Advent Sermon Series
We love the bright colored lights of Christmas breaking up the extended darkness of winter. They point to the much greater Light revealed at Christmas that shatters a darkness far deeper and more crushing to the human spirit than a Minnesota winter. Join us this December as we look to the stories surrounding Jesus’ birth and reflect on the Christmas Light that can brighten our lives and our world.
