Join us this Advent and Christmas season at City of Light!

When we walk through the church year, something beautiful and life-changing happens: we actually walk with Jesus: through his birth, life, ministry, death, resurrection, and mission. And when we journey with him, we see that our lives aren't random—that our own stories fit into his story and find a greater joy and purpose than we ever could trying to craft our own. This story begins with Advent, a season of waiting and watching for Jesus to arrive and breathe his hope into those dead and dry places in our world and in our hearts.

Advent Worship Guide


As believers and part of the church, we are invited to bring that sense of waiting and expectancy into every aspect of our lives. We wait for God to show up not only on Sunday mornings, but also in our households. Whether you are a family with children, a celibate, or a student in a dorm, you are invited to worship God and await His coming in your household. Here are some helpful resources for you this Advent season.
