December 18th | 6 PM
An Advent Service in the Hispanic tradition that recalls Mary’s and Joseph’s search for shelter in Bethlehem. Worshipers follow the Holy Family as they visit several innkeepers looking, unsuccessfully, for shelter. They finally find room and are welcomed into a manger. Our evening begins with a service in the Sanctuary and is followed by a fiesta with tamales, fun, music, door prizes, photo booth with Santa, and a piñata for the kids.

18 de Diciembre | 6PM | Las Posadas
Las Posadas es un servicio de Adviento en la tradición hispana que recuerda a María y José buscando posada en Belén. Los partícipes siguen a la Sagrada Familia en su búsqueda de posada, mas no logran encontrar posada. Finalmente, encuentran posada en un pesebre. Nuestra evento empieza con un servicio en el santuario, seguido por una fiesta con tamales, diversión, música, premios, foto con Santa Clos, y una piñata para los niños.
