Messy Church offers advent gathering on Dec 8

“After shopping for toys, come for comfort and joys,” says Barbara Crowley as she invites everyone to attend Messy Church’s Advent gathering on Sunday, Dec 8, from 4 to 6 p.m. at Laguna Beach United Methodist Church.

Messy Church offers an intergenerational, interactive opportunity for anyone who is uncomfortable at a traditional church service yet seeks spirituality and community.

LBUMC presents Messy Church on Dec 8 

Crowley, who leads Messy Church, invites people of all ages to deck the halls with stars, angels, nativities, shepherds, and kings. “We’ll be making heirloom crafts, evergreen wreaths, singing Christmas carols by candlelight, and enjoying other activities related to the Christmas story,” she adds. 

In addition, a meal is always served. RSVPs are welcome, but not required.

Laguna Beach United Methodist Church is located a 21632 Wesley Dr, up the hill from the Gelson’s Shopping Center.
