By: Doreen Gosmire, Anna Mutzenberger, and Camille Zachrison, communications team, Dakotas Conference UMC

Anna Mutzenberger and Camille Zachrison, students at Dakota Wesleyan University and interns for the Dakotas Conference are getting excited for the end of the semester and Christmas. They invite you to join the Advent study Heaven and Earth: Advent and the Incarnation, by Will Willimon.

Bishop Lanette Plambeck will lead the study on Zoom, Tuesday evenings at 7-8:15 p.m., beginning November 28. She will introduce us to the God who brings heaven to earth and changing everything. In Advent, we celebrate and anticipate the earth-shaking, life-transforming good news that God is coming to us. Watch out. Get ready. God is on the way.
