The United Methodist Book of Worship reminds us that Advent is a season of four weeks including four Sundays. Advent derives from the Latin adventus, which means "coming." The season proclaims the comings of the Christ—whose birth we prepare to celebrate once again, who comes continually in Word and Spirit, and whose return in final victory we anticipate.
To prepare for the birth of Jesus we have many special events planned. We also have a devotional book for you to utilize during this season. We have printed copies on the Welcome Desk and you can access a digital copy here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Vj6NPLZJhvXPsZq9-vu0KEBaKTvZrQtAmbnOQaMBDh8/edit?usp=sharing
Rev. Sarah has chosen the text for the Contemporary Studies Group Advent Study :
The Angels of Christmas: Hearing God's Voice in Advent, by Susan Robb. This four-week Advent study explores the four angelic visits surrounding the birth of Jesus with Zechariah, Mary, Joseph, and the shepherds and how these four angelic appearances hold meaning for listeners both then and now.

The UMF Cookie Walk Returns!
On Sunday morning, December 4th
Fellowship Hall will be filled with tables of festive and delicious cookies to purchase. To make this a successful event, UMF is also looking for donations. Donating a few dozen of your favorite cookies is a wonderful way to share your tasty recipe with others while filling your own box with various cookies for your holiday gatherings. Whether purchasing, donating or doing both, United Women of Faith appreciate your participation.
