Lectio Divina: Evenings of Advent Reflection
Tuesdays at 6:30pm on Zoom | November 29th, December 6 & 13
Lectio Divina or Sacred Reading is the slow, repetitive reading of a sacred text that leads one to the ultimate step of resting in God. It is not a Scripture study, nor a spiritual reading. It is an invitation to take a long, loving look at Scripture. During our 45 min time, we will walk through a 4 step process each week using the text for Advent. This practice can be adapted and incorporated into individual prayer life. Zoom link here (password: Redeemer)
Northside Advent Gathering & Vespers
Wednesday, December 14th from 5:30-8:00 pm
Dinner! Sock Exchange (all ages)! Vespers and Caroling! Family Cookie Sharing! Save the date and plan to bring friends and family to an evening of fun and fellowship. Starting at 5:30 pm at Christ the River of Life. More details to come.
ADVENT KIDS PROGRAM & EVENTS
~ December 18th during worship ~
