Sunday, December 1, is the First Sunday in Advent.
The sermon for December 1 – Sing Out The Joy – Isaiah 42:10-17
Advent is a time to take stock of the fact that Joy comes to the world because the Lord has come. Isaiah foretold that when the Messiah came He would give us JOY in the midst of the harshness of life. I wonder can we find the joy in the midst of the events in our economy, in a marriage gone sour, in a nation that is conflicted? Let’s discover the joy the Lord will bring.
The Advent Wreath
The first Candle is lit on the first Sunday of Advent, shortly after November 30. It is called the Prophecy Candle and reminds us that Jesus’ coming was prophesied hundreds of years before He was born. The candle’s purple color represents Christ’s royalty as the King of Kings.
Suggested Bible Reading: Luke 1:26-38
