Advent & Christmas Worship
Throughout the month of December, we’ll be marking the four Sundays of Advent, when we remember the wait for God’s promised messiah. We know this anointed servant was born in Bethlehem, and we celebrate the birth of Jesus at Christmas time. Throughout these seasons, we’ll sing favorite carols and talk about what Jesus’ coming into the world means for us.
Our Sunday morning schedule is the same: worship is at 9:30 (and runs about an hour). Sunday School begins at 10:45. We hope you’ll join us for this special season.
On Christmas Eve – December 24 – we’ll gather for our main Christmas service at 6:30 pm. During this service, we’ll celebrate the birth of Jesus by hearing the Christmas story, sharing in Holy Communion, and singing by candlelight. Everyone is welcome to come and mark this special holy day with us, so we hope you’ll join us!
Throughout the seasons of Advent and Christmas, we’ll be in a sermon series titled Born for Us. Sometimes we treat the birth of Jesus as a historical event to remember – albeit a very important one. For other people, this story becomes the background music for buying presents and spending time with family. This year, we want to take some time to remember that this wondrous birth really means something in our lives today.
Each week, we’ll be looking at a different aspect of what it means to say Jesus is “born for us.” Even though he was born about 2000 years ago, his birth still has meaning for us today – that’s part of the power of God’s great story. Whether you’ve thought about these things every day for years or never given them a second thought, we hope you’ll join us as we take this look at the meaning of Christ’s birth for each and every one of us.
