Season's Greetings Friends!
Advent is a season of watching! So often we are thrust into the season of Christmas without adequate personal preparation. The economics push retailers to start earlier and earlier and, in our mind, the season is complete before it has ever arrived. I urge you to slow the pace, quiet the mind, and reflect on the Gift of Jesus. Let’s stand in awe at the wonder of the Son of God coming to us in our own flesh and blood, one of us, leaving behind his divinity as he emptied himself. Emmanuel is God with us!
Let me encourage you to be present for worship throughout the Advent season as we “Watch” to prepare for the birth of our Savior. Our 4 week message series is entitled “Watching for Christmas.” Our journey begins on December 3rd 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 extending his love to us through Jesus. Jesus is our HOPE!
In subsequent Sundays we will continue our journey to Christmas with timely missionary messages about PEACE, JOY and LOVE concerning our Savior! 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 Candlelight service on Friday December 22nd this year 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 celebration of communion, and the always meaningful Candle lighting tradition, we will put the finishing touches on our “Watching for Christmas” 2023.
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
