HPU to Host Virtual Advent Worship Series for Community Members

HIGH POINT, N.C., Dec. 8, 2020 – High Point University’s Office of Chapel and Religious Life will offer a virtual Advent Worship Series beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Dec. 9. Anyone can tune in by clicking here.

To continue fostering the Christmas spirit during the pandemic, the three-part Advent series will take place virtually each Wednesday leading up to Christmas. The services will feature seasonal music provided by student leaders in the Chapel community and messages centered on the sacred promise that no matter what we endure, “these three remain: faith, hope and love (1 Corinthians 13).”

“There has been so much loss this year,” says Rev. Preston Davis, minister to the university. “But Christian scripture helps us see more clearly. God’s promise and presence has staying power. We may be frustrated, but faith will not perish. We may be hurting, but hope is at our doorstep. We long for something more, and we are reminded at Christmas that love has been and can be born again in our hearts. Faith, hope and love remain.”
