Escape from the busyness of the holiday weekend for a great family getaway. Discover the peace of Advent, through worship and time for reflection and renewal, so you can enjoy the real meaning of the season.  You may start new family traditions as you fill your weekend learning new crafts, baking and decorating cookies, singing around the Christmas Tree, or just pulling a chair up next to a fireplace with a good friend and a cup of hot cocoa.
Our weekend will be centered around morning and evening worship that walks us through the Advent season, preparing our hearts and minds for the coming of Christmas.  Wonderful music, candlelight, and reflections on the season by a guest Pastor make for an unforgettable experience.Throughout the day amazing crafters will share their skills and help you make beautiful gifts to share or keep for your own home.  Check out the gallery of crafts from past years in our online photo gallery.
