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 our Rescuer, from his birth to his death to his Resurrection and Ascension. And when we journey with him, we see that our lives aren't random—that our own rescue stories fit into a bigger story of God delivering this world from everything that holds us captive. Join us on Sundays as we begin the story of Jesus by waiting for our Deliverer this Advent.

Sundays, December 3 - Christmas
10am, 56 S. LaSalle St. Aurora

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.
