It’s the most wonderful time of the year….

….or so the old song goes. Yet it doesn’t always feel that way. Sometimes it is marked with loneliness or missing a loved one who has passed on. And the often-hectic nature of the season can pile on more challenges and stress.

The good news is – there is hope.

 

Hope, Love, Joy, and Peace – to be exact. Let’s make this Advent season one to set aside time to prepare our hearts for the coming of Christ. The four-week God With Us series will help us place our focus on the greatest gift ever given – and to experience his presence in our lives today.  This will be fun, eye-opening and maybe the best time you ever thought you could have at church! Come Visit Us! It's Advent time at Country Chapel, Sundays at 10am...


A remarkable thing happened that first Christmas, just as Isaiah had prophesied 700 years earlier – Jesus was born as Immanuel – which means “God with us!” Country Chapel Church believes Christmas can still truly give us a taste of the most wonderful time of world history. The true light came into the darkness and stress and pain of the world—our world. Miraculously, we continue in God’s story of love everyday as he promises to be with us always.  There is always Hope...  We are praying that you will come to see why Hope still exists.  The friends at our church would love to be your friend!

The season of Advent (or expectation) begins November 25 this year.  Church begins every Sunday at 10am... We have fresh Free coffee and snacks at our very own Cafe, called 'Heavenly Grounds'  Give us a try!



In February 2019 there will be a special called General Conference that will address   the true direction for the United Methodist Church Worldwide. What can we do? Fast & Pray that God's hand is involved and that His Will be done!  I will keep you updated.  -PR
