Dear Friends in Christ,

Can you believe that this is the First Sunday in Advent! We begin a new Church year with the four Sundays in Advent. It is a season to prepare our hearts for the coming of the Christ Child anew as we wait even now for the Risen Christ to come again. Our theme is a good one for these last days in 2020: “For Those Who Wait!” The scripture for this Sunday reminds us of the gift of “HOPE for those who wait.” Our scripture is 1 Corinthians 1:3-9 and Mark 13:24-27.

The Baslow Family will lead us with the Lighting of the Advent Wreath. The words are written in the Worship Guide so that you can use them at home for your own wreath. Our hearts will soar with the special music Sarah Shayban has planned for us. Especially for the children and the “child in each of us,” Elizabeth Nix will “Journey To Bethlehem” each week with the building of the nativity scene. Attached are the Worship Guide and the Children’s Worship Guide. Also today, from 11:30 to 1:30, is the Drive Through Advent Box for every home in the church.

More than ever, I look forward to being on this Advent journey to Bethlehem with you!

In the HOPE of Christ,

Laurey

Kids for Christ (KFC) will have a virtual meeting Sunday evenings, December 6, 13 and 20. Elementary age children (PreK – 5th grade) at 4:30 pm; Middle and High school youth at 5:15 pm. Contact Elizabeth Nix for details.

Theology Tuesday! The next meeting is Tuesday, December 1 at 7 pm. This week we will discuss the busyness of December and Advent. For many, preparation for and celebrating Christmas turns into a chaotic frenzy of activity. Is that the case for you this year? Is this advent different for you? Let’s see where God meets us during this Advent season and consider if we are too busy to meet God.. Everyone is welcome!

At Theology Thursday meetings, ALL are welcome and ALL are invited to share their own experiences and opinions when applica- ble. Disagreement and debate are important parts of discussion and wrestling with faith. However, hateful speech, harsh language, rude comments, and an inability to hear others’ perspectives and opinions will not be tolerated.
