She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. ~ Proverbs 31:26
Sunday, December 3, 2017 is the First Sunday in Advent.
The first Candle of the Advent Wreath is lit on the first Sunday of Advent, on December 3 this year. 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
Chuck Knows Church — ADVENT WREATH. Four candles in a circle with a big one in the middle? Yep, take a moment and learn the basics about the advent wreath. And why is the pink candle…pink?
Sing ‘n Celebrate Celebration of Children at October 1 at 5:00
Save this date for your family’s opportunity to hear Pender kids sharing about the beautiful story of “Good Good Father” — which will leave your children with a greater understanding of who God is and of who they are because they are loved by Him.
We read in Matthew 7:12 – “Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you”, which is commonly known as the Golden Rule.
This statement, as Jesus formulated it, is the foundation of active goodness and mercy — the kind of love God shows to us every day.
We have a special opportunity next Sunday to be witness to our children and grandchildren demonstrating in words and acting this type of love.
