Wonders of His Love
Whenever we gather this Advent, we will celebrate the 300th Anniversary of Joy to the World with singing. The Sundays of Advent, like all Sundays, are a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ even as the nights get longer and we anxiously await the coming of Christ two times.
Advent begins with Traditional Sunday Services at 11 a.m. on December 1, 8, 15 and 22. Like last year, there will be a different kind of Advent Wreath. There will be two wreaths – one dark and one light. For each week, we extinguish something and light something else. This way, the darkness slowly overcomes the light.
On Thursdays (December 5, 12 and 19) at 7 p.m. is Praying with the Saints. This Advent Midweek Service will include Holden Evening Prayer as well as observing the commemorations that fall during the month of December. Commemorations “illuminate various aspects of the church’s life and mission through the lives of women and men who have followed Christ in succeeding generations” (ELW Leaders Edition, p. 13). All are welcome to join us as we await the birth of our Lord.
Join us on Christmas Eve (Dec. 24) for the Repeat the Sounding Joy Family Candlelight Service with Holy Communion at 5 pm. Bring your family, bring a friend to worship this year.
The First Sunday of Christmas (Dec. 29) will be a Lessons and Carols Service with Holy Communion at 11 a.m.

“Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord,
and he will repay him for his deed.”
