Second Sunday of Advent
Worship 10 a.m.
with Church School and Nursery Care


 

With Children: Our children witness the baptism of Cora Watrous and then are invited to attend church school.  

The Word:     Malachi 3:1-4 foretells a messenger who brings news of a savior.  Luke1:68-79 introduces us quietly to John the Baptist. 


Our Message:  "Good Influence"
Prophecies are coming true.  A messenger, a savior.  And who is that?  Luke leads off with seven "powers that be" - but it is none of those.  Instead who comes is the one who will influence generations. 

In Music
Prelude:   “Comfort, Comfort These my People” - arr. Burkhart
        
Senior Choir:   “Comfort, Comfort" - Hopson 
Offertory: “Comfort, Comfort O My my People" - arr. Callahan
Postlude:   "Come Thou Savior of the World"  - Vetter
          
       
Our Hymns:  Come O Long Expected Jesus; Come To Me You Weary; and Comfort, Comfort, O My People.

Serving in Worship:  
  Sara Loutrell, Lois Turrell, deacons; Lois Turrell, Arthur Dobley, Paul Ames, Sara Loutrel, ushers; David Larson, lay reader.  Children are invited to the baptism.
