Making an Advent Wreath

This Sunday, November 27, marks the First Sunday in Advent. Have you made an Advent wreath for your home or church?

The wreaths often consist of a circle of evergreens with four purple candles and a white one in the center, but it’s fun to  be creative with the use of natural materials.

Sermon Sunday, September 22




Sermon on September 22nd: 

Children must be Taught – Deuteronomy 4:9

Who trains your child? You or the Public School? Who gives your child his/her values, morals? You or the Day Care? Who instructs your child about faith? You or the Church? It’s a duty to train up a child and teach the commandments. How are you doing with it?

“Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them fade from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them.” (Deuteronomy 4:9)
