This is a fun time of fellowship as we help people in the Norman community. The Advent takes place int he gathering hall. It begins at 10AM, will break for the 11:00 service, and continue afterwards during coffee hour.
December 10: Advent Trivia Bingo!: Advent ultimate Bingo is a twist on both bingo and trivia nights. Instead of numbers on your bingo card, there are words or phrases that are the answers to a variety of trivia questions about our Advent season and Christmas season in the church. It is a great time to have some fun while learning about our church and Bible stories. There are prizes for anyone who gets a "Bingo!" on their card. Advent Trivia Bingo will take place in the gathering space hall between 10:00 and 10:45.

A Blue Christmas Service is offered especially for those hurting during the holidays. Some come because they are mourning the death of a loved one. Some are far from home. Some suffer from a physical or mental illness, addiction, or estrangement. Some are lonely, struggling financially, or in conflict with another. Some hurt because of the great pain, need, and violence in our nation and world. The reasons for coming are many. We gather in the midst of suffering to remember God is good. God is strong. God is near. We are not alone, and we have every reason to hold on to hope. I invite you to join us at St. Michael’s on December 6, 2023, at 7:00 pm.
