Getting Ready for Sunday, December 3rd, 2017

This Sunday is first Sunday of Advent. Advent is a season of waiting leading up to Christmas. We listen to the prophets, we await the coming of Jesus that we celebrate at Christmas. We also anticipate Jesus’ final coming again to usher in the kingdom in all its fullness. 

As we journey through advent toward Christmas, our series of sermons is called Hark! It’s a call to listen up and “let every heart prepare him room” as the carol sings. This week we will be learning of Jesus our Immanuel and hearing from Matthew 1.18-25.

As a part of our worship gatherings in advent we’ll have a reading, prayer, and lighting of a candle on the advent wreath to symbolize our anticipating the arrival of the light of world into the darkness. 

We’ll also hear a mission moment about our LEAP and India trips. 

Each Sunday we celebrate the Lord’s Supper together. It points us to Christ’s death for us in the past, his present work feeding our souls, and our future hope in the kingdom of God. This week in preparation to come to the table we’ll pray the Lord’s Prayer. 

Here are the songs you will be singing:

Come Light Our Hearts, O Come O Come Emmanuel, Come Thou Long Expected Jesus, Hark! the Herald Angels Sing, God is With Us, My Soul Magnifies the Lord

We meet each Sunday at 9a & 10:45a for worship at the church building at the corner of Floral and Washington, 4400 Floral Ave., 45212Please sit toward the front of the sanctuary and toward the center of the rows so that folks can grab seats as they make their way in.
