During Advent we are thinking about how all creatures, great and small, are blessed in God’s sight, and in need of the hope, peace, joy and love we can bring into the world. It is a time of expectation, logistical and spiritual preparation, and finally the arrival of Christ anew in our hearts. A few notes for your own preparations:
–Lauren graced us with her preaching for the first Sunday in Advent (11/27). Pastor Carol will preach the remaining services through Christmas Day, all at 10 am.
–Our beautiful Christmas Eve service will be at 6:30 pm on Saturday, December 24.
–We are in need of (1) families (singles, doubles, any configuration) to light the Advent candles each week, and (2) many voices to offer short readings on Christmas Eve. Please let Pastor Carol know if you are interested in either of these opportunities.
–There are a few copies available on the entry table of the UCC Advent devotional “Wolves and Lambs.” This beautiful publication is now sold out, so we cannot get more. But here is a link to download your own copy!
