November 26 — December 17

In the United States, Christmastime and thoughts of home just go together. “I’ll be Home for Christmas,” and “There’s No Place Like Home for the Holidays,” are two of the most popular holiday songs. Among the rituals we create for this darkest time of the year in the Northern hemisphere, perhaps the majority of them are associated with either going home or doing special things at home– whether lighting candles and having a time of family prayer during Advent, or decorating a Christmas tree, or caroling through a neighborhood, or hosting festive “open house” parties for friends, neighbors, and colleagues. It’s all about home.

 

Advent and Christmas Season are about another kind of homecoming, the homecoming of Christ to redeem and renew us, this earth, and all creation till “heaven and nature sing” with joy eternally.
 
 
Join us for worship at 10am, which includes Children’s Church (Children’s Sunday School and sharing in worship), and Adult Bible Study at 8:45am.
 
Our Advent bible study is Faithful: Christmas Through the Eyes of Joseph by Rev.Adam Hamilton.
 
 
 
 
 
On Christmas Eve, join us for a family friendly service at 10am, or a traditional candlelight service with communion at 7pm.
 
Because the holiday season and the focus on home and family are not always merry and bright, we invite you to join us for a Blue Christmas Service. There are two:
December 8 at 3pm at Asbury Methodist Home
December 17 at 7pm at Solomons UMC
