About

Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world!

Love God & Love Neighbor

Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can.

Advent Devotional (Advent begins Sunday, November 28th):
Living Well Through Advent 2021 English edition

Vivir un buen Adviento en el 2021 Español edition


Reverse Advent Calendar 2021 download  here .

Often an Advent calendar is used to count down the days until Christmas by opening a box and discovering an ornament or something that helps you focus on the Advent journey.  A reverse Advent calendar focuses on giving something instead of receiving.  Each day add an item to a box or reusable sturdy shopping bag.  Then donate the box or bag to a Food Bank or Food Pantry like Helping Hands.
