Just as Joseph and Mary had to wait for the baby Jesus, so too we must wait in our own lives.
We wait on our hopes and dreams. We wait on our purpose. We wait in so many ways.
But what does it mean to wait as the people of God? We will explore that question during this Advent season.
We hope you will come and be a part of Advent at Roswell Presbyterian Church!
