Worship / 11am
Sunday, December 9
This Sunday marks the second Sunday of Advent. Advent means "coming". During Advent, we look to the once and future coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The season of Advent calls us to "wait and watch". We light the candles of hope, peace, joy, love, and Christ in worship, calling attention to the first Christ event and our hope in the second Christ event, a time when God fulfills the promise that began in Bethlehem in all its fullness. When Jesus speaks to the fullness of this promise, he says, "Now when these things begin to take place, stand up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near" (Luke 21:28).
