  • 11/5/2017: Ilion, NY – Everyone in the community is invited to attend a four-week series based on the Advent themes of Hope, Love, Joy and Peace called The Star: A Journey to Christmas, beginning December 3rd at 10 am. Over two thousand years ago, a star burst through the darkness and signaled the long-awaited, yet still unexpected birth of a Savior. Ilion Community Church believes Christmas can still truly give us a taste of the most wonderful time of world history. In a season often marked by frenzied busyness, Advent is an opportunity to set aside time to prepare our hearts for the coming of Christ. The relevant messages in this series are designed to help us place our focus on a far greater story than our own—the story of God’s redeeming love for our world. With cookies and cocoa, lighting of the Advent wreath, and a gift for visitors, “The Star: A Journey to Christmas,” this series is the perfect opportunity for families throughout the community to come together to celebrate this special season.
