Advent & Christmas 2021

Last year we had a very different kind of Christmas.  This year, as we move into our new reality, let us learn to sing a new song!  Join us at Grace Avenue as we journey through Advent and prepare for the coming of a savior.  

Help Service Within the church by ushering and greeting throughout Advent and on Christmas Eve!
