During the season of Advent, we take the time to prepare ourselves for the coming Christ. There are a lot of different ways that people have historically done this, but this year at Smoke Rise we are taking time to worship fully, spend less, give more and love all. Below is a list of events that we invite you to attend so together we can turn Christmas upside down.
