Advent and Christmas at Walnut UMC

The season of Advent are the four weeks before Christmas that help us prepare our hearts and minds for Jesus’ arrival, whose name is Emmanuel, “God With Us.” Daily though, we experience hardships and struggles. What does it mean that God is with us? What does it mean that God brings us hope, peace, love, and joy? Join us every Sunday at 10 a.m. during these Advent and Christmas seasons to lift your hearts and learn how God is among us and within us. 

Families with young children are especially encouraged to attend weekly so the kids can prepare for the Christmas pageant on Sunday, December 18th. 

Additionally, we have the following special events.

Tuesdays at noon Zoom Christmas Bible Study. Every Tuesday at noon from November 29th to December 20th, we will gather together to hear what the spirit is saying to us in regards to the Advent and Christmas scripture passages. To join, go to and type in Meeting ID: 894 3160 9032 and the Passcode: 475933
