The theme of the Advent services, with the Rev. Rachel Cornwell. will be "I Believe, Even When.."

Recordings of fhe sermon will be availale on our YouTube channlel and our website under "Recordings of Services.".

During Advent our worship will focus on the importance of music to help us get through the tough times and tough situations. Throughout our worships you will be introduced to the haunting melody of Mark Miller’s “I Believe.” The lyrics of this anthem come from a poem that was reportedly discovered in a concentration camp. It speaks to the power of belief:

I believe in the sun, even when it’s not shining.

I believe in love, even when I don’t feel it.

I believe in God, even when, God is silent.
