Advent

Nov. 28 - Dec. 24

It's a season to slow down and anticipate and prepare for the celebration of Jesus' birth on Christmas day. It begins the fourth Sunday before Christmas and continues through Christmas Eve. 

During Advent we encourage you to find an Advent reading plan to help you pause and reflect on the reason we celebrate the Christmas season.

Be the Light

Christmas Tree Project
December 5 - 19 

We're partnering with The Underground – a faith-based organization that serves survivors of human trafficking and creates bridges to end exploitation in CT – to provide Christmas gifts to survivors as well as their children.

How to Participate:
Take an ornament from the tree in the Valley Brook lobby, purchase and wrap the gift, and then bring the gift to church no later than December 19. Each ornament has a gift item written on it that one of the survivors being served by The Underground is wishing for this Christmas. These items include gift wishes from the survivors as well as their children. 

It's the first year survivors will receive Christmas gifts through the ministry of The Underground. We are honored to serve as allies in this way as we light our tree in remembrance of our Savior- who illuminated the darkness– and follow His call to do the same.

Sundays in December

The Songs of Christmas
Sundays | 10:00 AM

Valley Brook Campus: 160 Granville Road, North Granby
Watch Online: Click here for Livestream links


Christmas is a time for music!
For a few, short weeks the songs of Christmas seem to unify the world. 
Whether they are pop songs, traditional carols, or sacred hymns, ultimately, the inspiration for Christmas songs is tied to the celebration of the birth of Christ.
 
Join us as we look at some of the most loved, theologically rich, and sacred songs of Christmas as a starting point for seeing what God wants to teach us through scripture this Christmas season.
