Advent Conspiracy
Christmas can still change the world.

Years ago, a small group of churches came to the end of Advent feeling that stress and consumerism had overtaken the worship and celebration of the season. The time of year when focusing on Christ should be the easiest had become the hardest. They began to dream and explore how they might recenter approaching Christ and anticipating His coming during the Advent season. Advent Conspiracy invites us into a different experience of Christmas than that of the cultural norm, shifting our focus from consumer spending back to the coming of Christ. We practice this as a community through four tenets:

Spend Less – Conserve some of the resources we could spend on material gifts and instead use them to make a bigger impact by giving to someone in need or making memories with the ones we love.

Give More – Celebrate one another by replacing material gifts with deeper, relational expressions of care and generosity, such as quality time, homemade gifts and acts of service.

Love All – Christmas is a chance to love others as Jesus has loved us. We’ve been able to share the resources we saved with those who are hurting in our city and across the world.

Worship Fully – All this starts and ends with Jesus. This is the season in which we are called to put down our burdens and joyfully lift praise up to our Savior.

We invite you to join us as we prepare for the coming of our King.

Celebrate in community with these opportunities to worship and serve our neighbors this season.

This year’s Advent Conspiracy Offering will go toward providing communities in Kenya with access to clean water.

Filled with stories and opportunities to help us celebrate the coming of our King as individuals, as families and as a community. Pick up a copy in the lobby  on Sundays, or download a pdf version here.
