Feed your soul this Advent!

Advent can be a wonderful time of spiritual preparation, in addition to being a time to buy and wrap presents, attend holiday parties and decorate Christmas trees! Giving your soul a little attention in this time can help make the whole season a true joy!

Bethany's Working Chapel is a great place to spend a hour or so each week during Advent. Come walk the labyrinth, sit and meditate on a new group of mandalas or color your own mandala. Lose yourself in a zen sand garden or fold a paper crane as you pray for peace. There is no right way to use any of the resources in the chapel – simply do one and see what happens! You might be very surprised at the peace and serenity that comes with one of these simple activities!

The chapel is open each day from 8 am – 8 pm, except for Monday evenings and some Saturdays. A CD player and CD's are available in the cabinet at the rear of the room if you would like some background music.

If you want a corporate experience there are: Carol Sings, mission projects, Worship services on Sundays and Christmas Eve. Do something new like the Luminaries, the Spanish Christmas Service, or Hanging of the Greens. Information about these can be found inside these pages and on the church website.
