ADVENT SERVICES

2022-11-27 16:38:27 dporzel

Hits: 2363


“This Is My Son”, our series of weekday Advent communion services, will be held and streamed
on WEDNESDAYS, November 30, December 7, 14, and 21, at 11:00. A luncheon will be
served following each morning service. (This week we will have Taco Bake Casserole!)
November 30: Just as God’s people of old waited with faith in the coming Messiah, so is our Advent
anticipation of Christmas… Our hopes and fears are real. They can distract us from God’s promises.
God’s promise was from the beginning spoken to Adam and Eve. Salvation would come through the
woman’s offspring. But it would not be Cain, son of Adam, nor Ishmael, son of Abraham, nor Absalom,
son of David. The true Son of Adam and Abraham and David is the Son of God. Our attention and faith
thus direct our hopes and fears to God’s Son, in whom we receive adoption as sons and daughters in the
family of God.
