This year we’re preparing resources for use in your Sunday services during Advent. We’re offering reflections from our ministry staff for each of the advent themes: Hope, Joy, Peace, Love, and Christmas.

Over the coming weeks we’ll also be sharing five short videos that we hope you’ll use in your services and to inspire your community. Watch this space for updates! We encourage you to sign up for our e-newsletters and follow us on social media for all the latest updates about Advent, FIRST UNITED, and the Downtown Eastside.
