First Sunday in Advent
The Church Year begins by taking us to the scene of our Lord’s final entry into Jerusalem that great and holy week. Yes, Christmas is at hand. Surely the preparations for the celebration of His incarnation, His earthly birth of the Virgin Mary, are already well under way. But wait a moment. We enter this new year already knowing why He became incarnate of the Holy Spirit for us and for our salvation, which is only by way of His passion, death, and resurrection. We begin by continuing to “wait for the revealing of our Lord Jesus Christ” on the Last Day (1 Corinthians 1:7), sustained by Him now in the forgiveness of our sins, guiltless and ready. In readiness, we boldly pray that our Lord comes to rescue and save us.
This service was pre-recorded on Friday.
In-person worship services and Sunday School classes have resumed with social distancing precautions. Services begin at 8 a.m., 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. Sunday School and Adult Bible classes are meeting in Grace Hall at 9:30 a.m.
For those who would prefer not to attend in-person yet, we offer the following adult Bible Study and children’s Sunday School lessons to help you to continue learning.
