Advent is an opportunity to not just prepare for the festivities of Christmas, but to prepare our hearts to receive the greatest gift of all, Jesus Christ! We have special services on Wednesday to help each of us focus on the joy of Christmas found not in earthly “stuff” but in our Immanuel, our God with us.
Hark the Glad Sound is the theme of our Wednesday worship services (10 AM and 7 PM) which focuses on the biblical songs of God’s people as they awaited the first coming of our Savior.
- December 2: Luke 1:67-79, Zechariah’s Song revealed that his newborn son will be a prophet, sent to prepare the way of the Lord, and the song serves as a melody of repentance for us.
- December 9: Luke 1:46-55, Mary’s Song declares that the Lord has remembered his covenant with us through his Son, making this a melody of remembrance.
- December 16: Luke 2:8-14, The Song of the Angels announced with great joy the Good News of Christ’s birth, and echoes through our lives today as a melody of rejoicing.
- Sunday, December 20: Isaiah 52:7-10, The Song of the Church carries the angels’ message of peace, good will to all the world, and resounds as a melody of reconciliation, bringing us into harmony with Christ and one another.
As part of your preparations for Christmas why don’t you join us for worship where we will “ponder anew” what God has given to us in Christ Jesus.
