Orchard UMC invites the community to ‘The Star: A Journey to Christmas Advent Series’


ORCHARD – Everyone in the community is invited to attend Orchard United Methodist Church for a four-week series based on the Advent themes of Hope, Love, Joy and Peace called The Star: A Journey to Christmas, the next four Sundays at 9 a.m.

More than 2,000 years ago, a star burst through the darkness and signaled the long-awaited, yet still unexpected birth of a Savior. Orchard UMC believes Christmas can still truly give us a taste of the most wonderful time of world history. The true light came into the darkness and stress and pain of the world — our world. That world then, just like our world now, including our lives, needs the light to illuminate, clarify, guide, and heal. This is the journey of following the star to Christmas — and beyond!

“This is what our community needs in this time of chaos in our country,” said Bobby Knowles, Sr. Pastor of Orchard UMC.

In a season often marked by frenzied busyness, Advent is an opportunity to set aside time to prepare our hearts for the coming of Christ. The relevant messages in this series are designed to help us place our focus on a far greater story than our own—the story of God’s redeeming love for our world.

Lighting of the Advent wreath, and a free devotional book for visitors, “The Star: A Journey to Christmas,” this series is the perfect opportunity for families throughout the community to come together to celebrate this special season.

Orchard UMC is a United Methodist CHURCH at 322 Missouri St. in Orchard, Texas. For more information, call 832-289-3803.
