Prepare for Worship
November 21, 2021
Homer United Methodist Church
We're opening the doors for Advent!

In person worship will resume on November 28 for the first Sunday of Advent. The worship service will also be livestreamed so you can participate from home. Please make the choice that is most appropriate for your health needs.

If you are worshipping in person, wear a mask and maintain appropriate physical distance. We will safely celebrate the joy of the season together.
Thankful: 21 Days of Gratitude
This month we are focusing on practicing gratitude as a spiritual discipline. Each day, write down 3 things you are grateful for and see how it lifts your heart and spirit!

You can click here to download and print a gratitude calendar, or contact the church office for a printed copy.
Hanging of the Greens
Let's decorate the sanctuary for Advent and Christmas!

Join me at 6 pm on Tuesday for the Hanging of the Greens, our annual tradition of decking the halls and preparing for the joyful season ahead.
