Second Sunday of Advent

Hey Everyone,

I hope you are all well on this snowy Friday morning (it snowing here in Lake City). This Sunday, December 4th is the second Sunday of Advent. During our worship service we’ll be lighting the Candle of Peace, celebrating communion, and then after, having our first-of-the-month potluck. So please remember to bring your communion elements to the broadcast if you’re joining us via Zoom. And, if you’ll be attending worship in person, join us for our monthly potluck after. This months theme is “holiday dinner.” Ham and brisket will be provided folks in our congregation. 🙂 The rest is up to you.

This Sunday, I’ll continue preaching from the Gospel of Matthew, as we explore the story of John the Baptist. You can read that text and the other lectionary passages in the downloadable online Order of Worship below.

Finally, if you’re in town, don’t forget that tomorrow is “Christmas in Lake City.” If you’re planning on participating in any of the day’s activities, stop by the Armory at 3:30 for Christmas Bingo… There’s a rumor that Santa will be calling the games, but who knows. 🙂

I’ll also be in the parade with the LCOWS, offering a short Christmas reflection at the lighting of the town tree, and helping lead the singing for the carol sing-a-long in the Lake City Art Center theatre directly after the dedication ceremony (around 6:30pm). I hope to see you at some point during the day.
