Advent and Christmas News!
Advent is a season observed in many Christian churches as a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the birth of Jesus at Christmas.  For 2017, Advent begins on Sunday, December 3rd and continues each Sunday through Christmas Eve!  Want to find a way to stay focused on WHY we celebrate Christmas?  Then come and be our guest at any of the events listed below.  

 

Come celebrate!

There is no better time to begin to explore Caddo Mills United Methodist Church, the Advent Season, and your Christian faith!  When we read closely through the story of Jesus’ birth, we meet many characters who had cause to feel afraid due to the circumstances they faced and the cultural context for the time.  But angels came to visit them, and the message they brought was “Do not be afraid.”  
 
In our modern day and age, sometimes we need to hear exactly the same message.  This season, we encourage one another to “fly in the face of fear” claiming hope, peace, joy and love for the world.
