2018 Advent Booklet Testimonies

Submissions are due

November 17, 2018.

As Christmas approaches and as we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, it is time for us to reflect on how Jesus has blessed us, healed us, or worked His miracles in our lives. During Advent, the church publishes testimonies or reflections from the congregation. Please consider documenting your reflection in our Advent booklet. Twenty-three stories are needed, one for each day of Advent. This year the Caring for One Another small group is heading up this project. Submissions can be turned in by email to Mindy Takechi at or at the church.
