December 3, 2015 – December 24, 2015
Advent is a season of waiting and preparation for the coming of Christ, the promised and longed for Messiah. We use words like longing, anticipation, and expectation to describe what that waiting feels like. In this Groundwork series we study the traditional Advent themes of Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love to remind ourselves why we wait, what we're waiting for, and how we should live while we wait.

Do you long for a moment of peace? What images come to mind when you think about that peace - a cup of hot coffee, a blanket by a warm fire, a colorful sunset? Discover God's peace through our discussion on Groundwork as we study images of that peace found in Isaiah and discuss how waiting for Christ also means being people of shalom.
