Greetings E-news Friends,

This Sunday is the beginning of the Advent season. Advent simply means, “coming”. Throughout the Old Testament there was the anticipation of the coming Messiah (one anointed to be the savior of the world). Today we observe Advent, looking forward to his coming again and establishing an everlasting kingdom of peace. That is not a fantasy, but a fact established by what God has already done in history.

In this Advent month, we will celebrate the Hope, Peace, Joy and Love that accompanied the birth of Jesus – and look to his second coming when Hope, Peace, Joy and Love will be perfected.

Christmas Dance Performance
Saturday, December 8th, at 5:00 PM Briarcliff will be hosting a Benefit Dance performance by the dancer at Studio 10 Dance in liberty Missouri. It will be a wonderful night filled with music, dance and praise. Tickets will be $10 and can be purchased after the services on Sunday. 100 percent of the proceeds will go to Hillcrest Hope at Avondale.
