The now and coming reign of God
This week we will come together for our final worship services of Autumn Quarter. This week also happens to be the first week of Advent, one of the seasons of the Church Year when we focus our attention on a particular Christian theme: the coming of God.
The word Advent comes to us from the Latin word adventus, which means "coming." We celebrate the season of Advent in the month leading up to Christmas, when we remember the coming of God into the world in the person of Jesus Christ. But Advent is about more than just Christmas. During this season we also look forward in hope to that time when God will come again to establish a kingdom of love, peace, and justice that will last forever. Advent reminds us that we are still call to wait and watch - but not without hope, and not without the presence of God in our midst.
Please join us as we explore the good news of the coming of God this week!
Grow: a space for prayer and worshipEach Monday evening from 7-9pm, the Relinquish prayer ministry invites you to join them for an event called Grow. Grow takes place in The Room (located in First Free Methodist Church's Fine Center - just off of W. Cremona St.). Drop in for any amount of time, and join with other students who are passionate about experiencing the presence of God in open worship and intercessory prayer.
Have a wonderful winter break!
