Wednesday Evening Advent Gathering - December 5th, 12th, & 19th at 7pm
•While the secular calendar won’t switch to 2019 for another month, the Church Year begins anew today. Advent is a season of waiting and preparation. One Advent tradition is to mark the four Sundays in Advent with four words that encompass what Jesus brings as He comes into the world to be our Immanuel—God with us. These four words are hope, peace, joy, and love. Today we focus on hope. There is a lot of suffering in the world, but hope exists in Christ’s incarnation, death, resurrection, and return.
Lord, you are the "Yes to God's promises. Help us to express our "yes" to you in works of love and service.
