Christmas at the Barn: Saturday December 2, 3:00PM – 6:00PM

Advent Quiet Day: Saturday December 9, 10:00AM – 3:30PM
Give yourself the gift of rest in the midst of holiday busyness. Join us in the Barn from 10AM to 3:30PM as we make space for God and open our hearts to the hope of the season. Through poetry, prayer, and scripture, we will reflect on the meaning of Advent and listen for how God might be speaking to us.
