The This Is Love Worship Series

Dec. 9 — “What Hope Looks Like”
Dec. 16 — “What Peace Looks Like”
Dec. 23 — “What Joy Looks Like”
Dec. 24 — “This Is Love”


Love can be hard to define. It can be something we feel, or something we do. Something we have, or something we give. But we might all agree that it is something we need more of in the world today.

If you are looking for a love that is demonstrable, powerful and transformative, begin with God’s love revealed in Jesus. As his followers, we are called to show this love in the way we offer hope, peace and joy to the world.

Advent is a time for us to direct our hearts and show the world THIS love, given to us in Jesus.
