O come, all ye faithful
Joyful and triumphant
O come ye, o come ye to Bethlehem

Each year the Christian church sets aside the holy season of Advent as a time of making ready our hearts and minds for the joy of Christmas. This year at PUMC, we invite you to participate in the various worship opportunities as together we journey towards Bethlehem.

Advent Sermon Series

Join us this Advent as we celebrate the wonder of Christmas! We will be focusing on the

wonders of God’s Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love. Invite your family and friends to join us as we

marvel at the wonder of our Savior’s birth!

Advent Devotional from Kate Bowler

We often hear Christmas is the "happiest time of the year," but that isn't always the case. Kate Bowler offers an advent devotional, The Season of Waiting for uncertain times like these.

From The Season of Waiting: "After another year has probably not turned out like you expected it would (it never does), we see the world as it has always been—a world who waits for its Savior to come again and put things right. Advent is a chance for us to wait for the kingdom of God to break in together."

Christmas Concert Dec. 3 at 7pm and Dec. 4 at 4pm

This year's Christmas Concert will usher in the Christmas season celebrating fresh arrangements of favorite carols, adding in new songs from time to time. The concert will have reflective moments both triumphant and tender that tell the Christmas story and accompanied by a semi-professional chamber orchestra. Come one and all! Let's Sing His praises together!
