Season of Advent

How Will You Be Waiting?

Christmas is about waiting; waiting for that day we get to open presents, to spend time with family, to celebrate the birth of the Christ child. The Advent sermon series is about how we wait. Sometimes we wait patiently and faithfully, sometimes we wait in preparation, at times we sing while we wait, we share our family traditions, and we make room for Jesus in our hearts. Join us on Sunday mornings for worship (8:55 Contemporary, 10:55 Traditional) as we wait for the day we celebrate God with us.

SERVICE OF HOPE

Thursday, December 21 at 6:00 pm in the Sanctuary

The magic of the holidays is often missing for those suffering grief and loss. Bright lights and the sounds of Christmas Carols do not always lift heavy hearts. If you or someone you know is experiencing the loneliness and sadness of loss, you are not alone. On December 21, the longest night of the year, First United Methodist Church of Nacogdoches will have a worship service honoring and remembering our losses in a place of faith, hope and love, where prayers, music and messages will comfort and uplift you.
