EVERYONE NEEDS THE LIGHT
Advent Theme: Let there be light. Light is a necessary part of life. It provides clarity and direction so we can make our way. It provides safety and security. At this time of the year, we feel the absence of light. During these next four weeks of Advent, we will look
at our need for light and Jesus is the true light of the world. Let us continue praying for each other.
