You are a Light of the World! Celebrating Advent 2021


“You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to God.” – Matthew 5: 14-16

Join us this Advent season as we journey to the manger by celebrating the laity in the Oregon-Idaho Conference who light up this world! Each day of Advent, beginning this Sunday, you will see different, amazing laity highlighted on our Oregon-Idaho Conference Facebook page.

We asked leaders throughout our Conference to nominate individuals from their church or ministry settings who are showing us what it means to be a church these days: demonstrating God’s radically inclusive love through acts of kindness, mercy and justice.

You will read about wildfire recovery heroes, champions of COVID-19 precautions, creation care specialists, youth inviting us to know our neighbors, and countless others. Some names you may recognize for the diligent work they do helping us, as a Conference, be disciples of Christ. We were also intentional about recognizing many of the hardworking individuals who aren’t always in the limelight, yet they, too, provide a bright spark through their everyday actions to bring about hope, peace, joy and love in the world around us.

We will update this link with the profiles throughout Advent!
