Advent Cantata

Sunday, December 12 at 10:15am

It feels as though we've all become more acquainted with waiting. When will life return to normal? Since Eden, God's people have always been acquainted with waiting: Old Testament believers waited eagerly for the coming of the Savior. And we, likewise, wait eagerly for His return, when He will will return to set His creation right. This year's cantata, Waiting for Christ, highlights the tension of giving thanks for the birth of Jesus while we, too, wait for His second coming and the completion of God's redemptive plan.

This month's run will be Saturday, December 21 with sandwich making on December 19. We are planning to give out coats and gloves as the winter, and welcome donations to distribute as the cold sets in.

You can also support this ministry by purchasing Christmas floral arrangements - 100% of proceeds go to support PHR!
