Epiphany is the season of LIGHT, a time for us to look for the light in our lives and in those around us. Epiphany is also a time for us to reflect the light given to us by God in the birth of Jesus.
YOU are invited to celebrate this season of light with us at Faith United Church of Christ. Join us in the many activities you find here on our web site, join us for worship on Sunday morning at 9:30 or just stop by to visit when you are in the neighborhood of 1609 DeForest Ave in Iowa City.
Advent 2015 has arrived. We begin Advent with this invitation:
1.) If you are a regular worship
attender, please continue to worship with us
regularly during Advent as we prepare for the
coming of the Christ Child. 2.) If you have not been regular in
worship, Advent is a wonderful time to begin
3.) If you have not worship with us in a
long time, it is okay to come back and
worship with us again. Advent is a good time
to begin again. 4.) If you are looking for ways to
enhance the quality of living, please join us
for worship. Advent is a good time to look for
new meaning in life. 5.) If you want to share in the mission and ministry of Jesus, Advent is a good time to learn
what we can do to share the Good News of God’s love for all people. Why not join us during Advent as we celebrate the coming of the Light of God into all the
world? Our lights during Advent 2015 will include a light of understanding, a light of compassion, a
light of justice, a light of hospitality and a light of peace. Each Sunday new lights and new learnings
will help us focus on the one light from God.
Join us please, for worship each Sunday at 9:30 a.m. and on Friday, December 24, Christmas
Eve at 6 p.m. for the lights of Advent 2015.
