Watch Rev. Polly's message
On the fourth Sunday of Advent, we celebrated love and heard a message from Rev. Polly. She preached “Love Abides” and her text was from Paul's first letter to the Corinthians: "And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.” Watch her message or see our worship slides.
