DECEMBER  2021 

Season's Greetings Friends!

 

What is Advent?  . . . While Advent is certainly a time of celebration and anticipation of Christ’s birth, it is so much more! In the shadow of Advent the miracle of Christmas comes alive. God’s promises past, present and future all come into focus. Our great God extended his hand through Jesus to save this sinful world. Jesus Christ- he has come, and he will come again. This is the essence of Advent.
 
Let me encourage you to be present for worship throughout the Advent season as we “get ready” to celebrate the birth of our Savior. Our 4 week message series is entitled “God’s Greatest Gift.” Our journey begins on November 28th as we will light the first candle in our Advent Wreath--the Candle of Hope. We will focus on the role that God the Father played introducing His Son Jesus in John 1.  Jesus is our HOPE!
 
In subsequent Sundays we will continue our journey to Christmas with timely messages about PEACE, JOY and LOVE concerning our Christian faith!  Make your plans now for these special celebration days.  I believe that God will honor your faithfulness!

 
The highlight of St. John’s Advent Season will be our Christmas Eve (Dec 24) Candlelight Communion service beginning at 7:00 p.m. This for many of us is our favorite worship service of the year. Through the reading of the Christmas story from the Bible, the singing of Christmas hymns, the lighting of the Christ Candle – the center candle in our Advent Wreath, the celebration of communion, and the always meaningful Candle lighting tradition, we will put the finishing touches on our “getting ready” for Christmas 2021. 
 
So come and celebrate the season of Advent with your church family. Come and give thanks for the birth of God’s Son.  Jesus is the GREATEST GIFT of ALL
 
Advent Blessings,

 

Pastor Wendell
