The Ties that Bind

We celebrate the love of learning and joy of Christian service and embrace the ties that bind during the 2013 Advent season.

Reflect with us on the meaning of Jesus’ birth during a Christmas chapel service, open to the public, in Martin Chapel of the seminary building on Monday, Dec. 9, at 4:30 p.m.

EMU’s online Advent greeting for 2013 will feature the the music of alumni and friends who are part of The Walking Roots Band, a Harrisonburg-based folk/bluegrass band. Past years’ Advent greetings have featured other EMU-related musicians.
