First Sunday of Advent
Worship at 8:45am and 10:00am
“The days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when I will fulfill the good promise I made to the people of Israel and Judah. In those days and at that time I will make a righteous Branch sprout from David’s line; he will do what is just and right in the land. In those days Judah will be saved and Jerusalem will live in safety. This is the name by which it will be called: The Lord Our Righteous Savior.” –Jeremiah 33:14-16
Guest Preacher, Rev. Oden Warman, will be preaching at both services, “Ready, Set, Wait”
On this First Sunday of Advent we begin a new Christian year. Our life and schedules are often filled with chaos and doubt. In Advent we look back to the prophecies that a messiah would come and we look forward in hope to the age of Christ’s return. We wait for God with hope, peace, joy and love. The sacrament gives us strength along the way. Advent calls us to prepare as we wait.
Scripture: Jeremiah 33:14-16; Luke 21:25-36
