Sunday December 10th 2017
at the Congregational Church of North Stonington
...

Join us Sunday, 10 a.m. Worship with Church School

Stewardship Final Offering: 
Dedication of our Pledges and Gifts


Second Sunday of Advent
Baptism of Chloe Guigli

 

The Word:    Isaiah 40:1-11, Comfort ye, my people...is not about warm blankets and cozy fires.  The sort of comfort we receive from God comes with a backbone and some muscle. 
and Mark 1:1-8 where John the Baptist shouts "You brood of vipers." 


Our Message: "Messengers of God"  
As we watch for "signs of God" during Advent, there are a number of messengers, such as those in our texts for Sunday.  Throughout history we've been given messengers  - but you and I, WE, can be God's messengers as well.  How will you be a bringer of Hope into this world? 

With Children: Sue Latourette will offer the Time for Children then the children are invited to attend Church School.

In Music: 
PRELUDE:  “Once He Came in Blessing” – Burkhardt       
SENIOR CHOIR ANTHEM:  “Prepare the Way of the Lord"- Rowan
OFFERTORY:  "The Blessing"  - arr. Purifoy,  Alice Robbins soloist        
POSTLUDE:  Postlude on "Prepare the Royal Highway" - Burkhardt
        
 

Our Hymns:     Comfort, Comfort O My People; Isaiah the Prophet Has Written; and Little Bethlehem of Judah.


 Serving in Worship Kathi Thaxton, Ron Robbins, deacons; Monica Eppinger, Pat Turner, Sephen Gadaree, ushers; Ingrid Stock, lay reader; Sue Latourette, time for children.

The Kirkin' o' the TartanThe Kirkin' o' the Tartan: This blessing of tartans was instituted by Rev. Peter Marshall in 1941. It remembers the time when wearing clan tartans was outlawed. Today many churches, especially Presbyterian, will celebrate this on Tartan Day in April or St. Andrew's Day, Nov. 30th. In our Kirkin' service, we remember ancient times, as well as past and present kith and kin, while asking God's help and blessings in the future. We celebrate Scottish heritage and history clansmen demonstrated true brotherhood and the clan was the family. The tartan is a symbol of this love and togetherness.
