“Faith to Be His Own!” Sunday, November 29, 2020
Dear Friends in Christ,
I usually don’t miss important anniversaries intentionally, but this one slipped by. Last Saturday was one of those markers of historic significance. Maybe you heard mention of the celebration. I didn’t till yesterday. It was then I realized I had missed a 400 year anniversary—it marked the first consented agreement of government in America.
On Nov. 21, 1620 after a near mutiny on the Mayflower, a pastor wrote a compact which was signed by 41 survivors of the expedition. They consented to become a community grounded in a Christian faith, its rules and order. That document would serve as a precedent for the faith and foundation of many generations to follow.
Before we rush into Christmas, and in spite of covid gathering constraints, let us ponder in this season of Thanksgiving, the provision of our Almighty God.
This Sunday we will assemble at 9:00 am at #Lot4praise; we will worship, pray and seek the Lord! Jon and Barb Elsass will edify faith in music and I am preparing an Advent message from John 1:1-13, “Faith to Be His Own!”
See you in worship this Sunday.
This Sunday’s Songs Lyrics for 9 am #lot4praise!
O Come all Ye Faithful!
Words by John F. Wade. 1943.
O come all ye Faithful, joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, o come ye to Bethlehem.
Come and behold Him, born the King of angels;
O come, let us adore Him, O come, let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him, Christ the Lord.
Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation;
O sing, all ye citizens of heaven above!
Glory to God, all glory in the highest; (refrain)

Scripture Reading for Sunday
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
There was a man sent from God whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.
The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. (John 1:1-13)
