Join with the WSUMC community in this one-day workshop on Saturday, November 4, as we focus our efforts to reclaim the gift of love this Christmas. Through worship, story telling, small groups, and out of the box thinking, the Advent Advance will help prepare you to rescue your holiday season from the consumption model that leaves you exhausted, over-extended, and financially spent. In this multi-generational gathering, let us discover new ways of giving and celebrating the gift of God in Jesus Christ so that we will be prepared to enjoy a life-giving and energizing season of Advent.

We are excited to not only have great leaders from the WSUMC Community, but will also be welcoming three guest presenters from local United Methodist Churches!

Rev. Katie Webster
Burke UMC

Rev. Jason Micheli
Aldersgate UMC

Mary Hamilton
Rising Hope Mission
