People are hungry for light, for wholeness, for healing. Nothing provides those things more than embracing that which gives us hope. We discover in Advent the greatest source of hope in the universe: the coming of Jesus. Join us in this season of Advent as we prepare to not only explore but embrace the real and living hope found in Jesus.
Join us Saturday, December 7th from 6:00 - 7:30 PM at the North Campus (1157 Market St) for a time to eat, mingle, and be tacky. Wear your ugliest ugly sweater and bring a dozen of your favorite cookies. You’ll have the chance to win prizes just for showing up! You can bring a women’s hygiene item for the YWCA, or a non-perishable food item for the Central PA food bank to get more opportunities to win.
This year, First Church is offering five Christmas services! Please visit firstchurch.cc/christmas for a more detailed description of what to expect at each service.
There are only two places where the powerful and great in this world lose their courage, tremble in the depths of their souls, and become truly afraid. These are the manger and the cross of Jesus Christ.
