ADVENT: This is serious point of focus for us as we celebrate the 1st coming & are waiting the 2nd. What is the spirit of advent, should be a lifelong spirit.

"Advent is marked by a spirit of expectation, of anticipation, of preparation, of longing. There is a yearning for deliverance from the evils of the world, first expressed by Israelite slaves in Egypt as they cried out from their bitter oppression. It is the cry of those who have experienced the tyranny of injustice in a world under the curse of sin, and yet who have hope of deliverance by a God who has heard the cries of oppressed slaves and brought deliverance!"

ADVENT- the 1st coming.

The word Advent means "coming" or "arrival." The focus of the entire season is the celebration of the birth of Jesus the Christ in his First Advent, and the anticipation of the return of Christ the King in his Second Advent.

About Forest Road UMC

forest-road-umc-pic-copyAbout Forest Road UMC

The history of Forest Road United Methodist Church chronicles the Christian Faith and the faithful living of many men, women and children.

The structure of our church tells the story of the heartfelt faith that is our true history. Every window reveals our dependence on the Light of the World. Each brick shows the importance of each participant in our church community and our need for each other. The roof reminds us of the grace which protects and covers us. The spire points to the love of God which entered out midst through Christ’s early life. The cross proclaims the price of our freedom from sin, and its emptiness celebrates that the One who died for us could not be bound by death. His cross is empty as is His burial place. Every stair reminds us that the journey of faith both climbs and descends. Our doors declare that we embrace all people, those that come seeking knowledge, serving, questioning, celebrating ….

Like the children’s rhyme where you make a church building with your hands and open the doors and “see all the people”, when you open the doors and “see all the people” at Forest Road UMC, you’ll see the true church – a community of people who have experienced certainty and confusion, elation and pain, wonder and worry. All are welcome here. Most importantly, God as we know him in Jesus Christ, welcomes all.

“Open Hearts…

Open Minds…

Open Doors”
