December Worship

December 2: Pastor Kathy will preach on this first Sunday of Advent as we start our Advent series focusing on the hymn “When a Child is Born”. This first Sunday we focus on the safest place and jeopardy. As we prepare to celebrate the birth of God’s son we find ourselves living in a chaotic and insecure world. We look to Isaiah 64:1-9 to explore how do the promises of God help us with our fears?

 

December 9: Pastor Chelsea will preach with a spotlight on obscurity. We turn to Mark 1:1-8 as we focus on preparation. What does it mean to prepare the way of the Lord? What should we be doing in our lives to prepare for Jesus?

 

December 16: Pastor Chelsea will preach on how we find Jesus not in the finest clothes but born in poverty. We will read Luke 1:47-55 and explore how sometimes the finery we see this time of year is really just a cover—a cover for the brokenness that exists in our lives.

 

December 23: Pastor Kathy will preach on the fourth and final Sunday of Advent, as we hear Luke 1:26-28 and ponder what favor Mary found with God, and what favor means for us.

 

December 24: We will explore the Christmas story at 4:30pm, 7pm, and 11pm with candlelight, hymns, and Scripture. 4:30pm will include a pageant for families and 11pm will include contemplative Communion.

 

December 30: Pastor Chelsea will preach on waiting. After a season of Advent waiting we will explore what it means to wait as we trust God’s promises. We will read the story of Simeon and Anna in Luke 2:22-40 and ponder how they are an example of faith in waiting for us.
