Otterbein will celebrate Advent

on Sunday, December 2, 9, 16, and 23rd and Monday, Christmas Eve December 24th. 

Nobody expected the arrival of a baby in Bethlehem to shake up their lives.   But when that baby is Jesus, plans are rearranged, beliefs are challenged, and ordinary people find their lives upended and forever changed.

Please join us for our Advent Journey called “The Christmas Dilemma” beginning Sunday, December 2nd.
