During Advent, the sermon series is titled "Longing for Something Real". Life is filled with searches--on the web, for lost things, and sometimes for something greater. At this time when we are expecting a Savior, God knows exactly who we are looking for. The prophecies that foretell the coming of Jesus are reminders of how God is working to bring us the love and light we so desperately crave.

This Advent, we'll look for these reminders of who the Messiah will be, trusting that Jesus is journeying with us, meeting us along the way. In this season, especially, there are many ways to offer your gifts and talents. Check the Connection Corners and here on herndonumc.org for opportunities. There will also be an exciting new look for the 10:30am worship service, and lots of great music all around. In particular, you won't want to miss Herndon UMC's annual Christmas Orchestra at the 9am service on December 22 which includes talented musicians from throughout our community.
