I hope you are all well and in blessed Advent spirits. I’m really struggling to believe that we’re almost through the holy season. It’s gone fast. I’m looking forward to celebrating the Fourth Sunday of Advent in a couple of days. As we join together to light the Love candle, we’ll consider what love looks like through God’s eyes and thus through our own. This Sunday, December 18, I’ll be preaching from Matthew 1:18-25. You can read the Gospel text and the other lectionary texts in the online order of worship below.
Other than the men’s prayer breakfast, all systems are ago for our weekly offerings. So please consider joining us for games on Monday night or our study of the Apocrypha on Wednesday. And, don’t forget Christmas Eve. For the fourth year, we’ll gather in the CPC yard for an outdoor candle lit service of song and Scripture. Details can be found below.
Here are your announcements for this week:
