The 1st Sunday of Advent

Jude 17, 20-25

This Sunday, we will light the candle of hope on the Advent Wreath. Jude speaks to the hope that we have in Jesus Christ. For centuries, God’s people hoped for a Messiah and we met our Savior in God’s Son, Jesus Christ. As people of faith, we anticipate the Christmas season with great hope, for we need Christ’s peace today.

Sunday, December 9

The 2nd Sunday of Advent

Malachi 3: 1-4

The prophet Malachi asks many good questions, encouraging God’s people to examine their faith and to seek God’s ways. The questions we ask and seek to answer are important in our development as Christ’s disciples. Malachi anticipates God’s plans to send a Messiah and instructs us to purify ourselves with the refiner’s fire.

Sunday, December 16

The 3rd Sunday of Advent

Luke 3: 1-18

The prophet John the Baptist came before our Lord and Savior to prepare the way for Jesus. John invites us to turn from our sins, repent, and to focus our attention on God. We will explore what it means to repent.

Sunday, December 23

The 4th Sunday of Advent

Luke 1: 39-55

When Mary learns that she will be giving birth to the Messiah, she is filled with joy. The birth of a child is a moment full of great promise and excitement. Jesus’ birth is the most celebrated birth of all because God has sent humanity a Savior.

Monday, December 24 (5 pm)

Christmas Eve

Luke 2: 1-20

 

We will hear the Christmas story, which tells of Jesus being born in Bethlehem. The shepherds come to offer their praises to the Christ child. We will proclaim once again that God is with us because in Jesus Christ, God’s Son took on human flesh and dwelt among us full of grace and truth.
