This weekend we celebrate the first Sunday in Advent with worship at both 8:30 and 10:45 am. Stay for coffee, snacks and conversation in between services and/or Sunday School at 9:40. All are welcome!
About worship this Sunday 12/2:
Advent is about the “coming days.” God’s people have always lived in great expectation, but that expectation finds specific, repeated enunciation in the texts appointed for these four weeks. The ancients anticipated a “righteous Branch to spring up for David.” The Thessalonians awaited “the coming of our Lord Jesus with all the saints.” Our Lord’s contemporaries hoped for the time “to stand before the Son of Man.” With them we eagerly await the coming days: another Christmas celebration, a second coming, and the advent of our Lord in word and supper.
