Advent 2014

advent-feature

 

 

Advent begins this year on November 30.

During Advent, we prepare for, and anticipate, the coming of Christ. We remember the longing of Jews for a Messiah and our own longing for, and need of, forgiveness, salvation and a new beginning.

Even as we look back and celebrate the birth of Jesus in a humble stable in Bethlehem, we also look forward anticipating the second coming of Christ as the fulfillment of all that was promised by his first coming.

The season of Advent, which comes comes from the Latin word adventus meaning  “coming” or “visit,” begins four Sundays before Christmas and ends on Christmas Eve.

New Sermon Series: Joy to the World!

joy-blog

 

 

Sermon 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.

“Sing to the Lord a new song, his praise from the ends of the earth…”

(Isaiah 42:10)
