Advent at Central 2020

Aaron Austin | November 19, 2020

Join us as we celebrate Advent this year in new ways, remembering the presence of Christ who continues to lead us into hope, peace, joy, and love.

During our times of worship this year, we invite you to light Advent candles with us.  If you don't have an Advent wreath at home, we have some available at church you can pick up.

Each day during Advent we'll share Advent devotions via our newsletter.  As our Central family shares stories of faith during this season, we hope you'll be reminded that you're not alone.

During Advent Vespers, we'll be hearing from some of our devotion writers as we talk about their stories and how they’re celebrating Advent this year.

First Sunday of Advent Worship

Sunday, November 29 - 11 a.m.

The season of Advent is always an invitation to wait, perhaps this year more than any other in recent history.  As we celebrate Advent hope, we remember the presence of Christ with us now and look forward to the healing and restoration that lies ahead.

Vespers with Matt Gabbard

Wednesday, December 2 - 7 p.m.


Second Sunday of Advent Worship

Sunday, December 6 - 11 a.m.

We continue our celebration of Advent as we contemplate peace.  As Jesus joins us in our sufferings, we can find solace in his presence and be part of God's work for peace and justice here and now.

Candlelight Communion

Sunday, December 6 - 6 p.m.

As we enter Advent, we Celebrate the light of Christ born in each of us.  We invite you to join us in this livestream by lighting candles in your homes and celebrating communion with whatever elements you have on hand.  Whether it's bread and juice, or Sprite and saltines, we know that Christ is present with us.  And even though we can't be together, we know that we are not alone.

Vespers with Gwen Hart

Wednesday, December 9 - 7 p.m.


Third Sunday of Advent Worship

Sunday, Deember 13 - 11 a.m.

We continue our celebration of Advent as we contemplate the joy of Christ.  Just as Jesus was born in a time filled with struggle, loss, and division, so Jesus brings the joy and promise of new life and restoration to our communities.

Vespers with Gerard Howell

Wednesday, December 16 - 7 p.m.


Fourth Sunday of Advent - Lessons & Carols

Sunday, December 20 - 11 a.m.

This year our Lessons and Carols service will combine selections from the Sanctuary Choir from years past with live worship elements as we celebrate the love of Jesus that is not bound by space or time.

Vespers with Stephanie Moore

Wednesday, Dec 23 - 7 p.m.


Christmas Eve Service

Thursday, December 24 - 6 p.m.

Join us as we celebrate Christmas Eve from our homes.  We'll check in with members of our Central Family to hear about their Christmas traditions as we contemplate the birth of Jesus.
