Thanks to all those who took part in the Fellowship event last Sunday and a special thanks to the Family Life Committee for all of your work on this special event. Sunday December 18th, we will be having a Cantata and the choir has worked hard to make this a special day for you. This is a great Sunday to invite family and friends to come and celebrate Christ’s birth with us.
Sunday, December 18th, we will also be going caroling to our shut ins at 2:00, please consider signing up to be a part of this ministry outreach. There is a sign-up sheet near the office, so we c know how many groups to prepare for and for food afterward.
We will be having Worship on Christmas Eve at 7:00 PM and at 10:00 AM on Christmas Day. There are still a lot of business cards left to give as invitations to family and friends. Please pick up some on Sunday.
This Sunday is the third Sunday of Advent. Advent is a 4 week time of preparation for Christ’s coming and his coming again. Each week we are starting a little early (at 8:50) with a time of singing carols. We are also lighting the Advent wreath each week. We will light the final candle on Christmas Eve as we come together for great music, a message, and a candlelight service. This week the Kids’s Praise Choir will be singing and this is always a special treat when they help lead us in worship. Thank you to all those helping with the skits and Advent Lighting.
I have been sharing a series about some of the People of Advent. I have talked about John the Baptist, Zechariah and Elizabeth, and Joseph. This week we will be looking at the life of Mary. She was a young woman of exceptional faith and courage. Her willingness to do as the Lord asked is a model of faith for us all, and it is no wonder she is revered all over the world. Please join me this week as we spend time in Worship, study and fellowship together.
Our Kid’s Worship and Childcare are available this week. Sunday school has classes for all ages at 10:15. We continue to offer multiple Worship options, including the Sanctuary, Chapel, and the Parking Lot 4 Praise. By Monday night each week the Worship Service is available online for those who cannot attend in person. I hope to see you this Sunday!
