From Pastor Toensing

Our Advent Midweek theme will consider the stories of four of God’s servants. We invite you to worship with us for these four midweek Advent services. As we hear their stories it gives us an opportunity to consider themes associated with each. God grant us a season of preparation and peace as we gather to hear His Word.
