Advent and Christmas

Though we are living differently these days, what remains consistent is the Hope, Peace, Joy and Love celebrated during Advent and Christmas. Our Worship Committee and Board have worked diligently to provide meaningful ways to celebrate this significant season. Our mission and outreach efforts this year focus on serving the homeless population, prison ministry, Sunnyside Ministries and our annual Angel Tree gifts for the children of Cleveland Avenue Homes.
