Advent@FUMC Allen

The advent season, a time for preparation and anticipation as we await the birth of the Christ Child, begins on Sunday, November 27, and ends on Christmas Day when we celebrate and rejoice the birth of the baby Jesus.

First United Methodist Church of Allen offers an extensive list of activities for the entire family, ranging from worship, concerts, crafts, and even a field trip. Our Holiday Challenge is in full-swing with many ways you can give back to others in need.

We don’t want anyone to be surprised by Christmas; therefore, we have shared our full Advent/Christmas calendar below. Each event includes a link to our website where you can get all of the details as you plan and prep for this holiday season.
