Shelbyville UMC and Short UMC Advent Worship Series

Shelbyville, Short United Methodist Churches

December 2, 2015 - We are excited about our Advent worship series this year. Advent is a time we take, these 27 days before Christmas to prepare our hearts and lives for the coming of the Christ child into the world. This is also a time we remember to anticipate Christ's return.

Shelbyville and Short United Methodist Churches invite you to join us for this worship series as we prepare our lives for the true meaning of Christmas.
