Sometimes we celebrate advent or observe it but what does it look like to Be Advent? The central truth of Christmas is that Jesus became one of us so that we could know Him and make Him known. The hope of that relationship is something we can share uniquely at this season with our friends, family and neighbors.
No matter where you've been or what you've done; we want Eastern Hills to be a community that you can call home. We are built for this kind of community and even if you've never experienced it before we hope you'll consider it now.
