Season of Advent 2017 Worship Theme:  Preparing for the Unexpected

Nov. 19            Parable of the Bridesmaids                Matthew 25:1-13

            How do you prepare for something you know will happen, but you don’t know when it will happen?

Nov. 26            The Day or The Hour No One Knows      Mark 13:24-37        

            The “End Times”!  What does Jesus teach about when and how this will happen?  This is also the week we invite folks to stay after church and help decorate the church for the “Hanging of the Greens.”

Dec. 3              Children of the Light                           1 Thessalonians 5:1-11 

            We are approaching the darkest, shortest days of the year (and often the news feels like reports of “dark days”).  As we await the coming of Christ, what are we to do?  (Hint – God has a much more positive spin on our situation.)

This is Holy Communion Sunday, All those who accept Jesus Christ as their Savior are invited to the table to share in the Great Thanksgiving.

 

Dec. 10            Our Children will be presenting a special Christmas Program, rumor has it Candy Canes will be involved!

Dec. 24 (10 am)          Mary’s Story                Luke 1:26-38              

            How did Mary discover the unexpected news that she would be the mother of Jesus (the Messiah / Christ-Child / Savior of the World) and what was her response?
