Advent at HPUMC

Advent is a word that means “coming” or “visit.” In the Christian season of Advent, we prepare for the “advent” of Christ at Christmas.

Part of the beauty of Christmas lies in its nostalgia – same traditions, same songs, same story. Yet each Christmas is slightly different.
Sometimes the change is more noticeable than other times. But each year’s celebration somehow speaks its familiar message with a freshness that can only be heard by ears a year older.

As you journey towards Christmas, may God prepare your heart to receive in a new way, the good news of the birth of Christ.

A Letter from Rev. Paul Rasmussen

As we celebrate this Christmas season around the church, we are keenly aware of our neighbors who live in poverty in Dallas and around the world. As you think about the gifts you will give your loved ones this season, will you also consider giving to these neighbors to bring them hope for a brighter future? As we have done joyfully throughout our history, we will direct 100% of our Christmas Outreach offering to help those in great need. The impact of your gifts will be felt near and afar as we continue to support our many strategic partners on health, housing and education initiatives. Please join us as we provide the gift of help and hope to those who need it the most.

God Bless,

Paul Rasmussen
