Advent by Candlelight

The women (and women friends) of Our Savior are invited to this special opportunity for fellowship and quiet reflection in preparation for Advent. We will hear an Advent story from God’s Word, join in song, and pray for our hearts to receive our Savior as we celebrate His birth. Light refreshments will be included.

Sunday Worship Services

Whether it is through music, prayer, or preaching, God’s word is at the center of all of our gatherings. Our services include a time of prayer, preaching, the Lord’s Supper, and giving, about 60 minutes long. The sermons are built on God’s Word, not the pastor’s ideas, and aim at transforming our lives to be more like Jesus Christ.
