We often think of the season of Advent as a time to remember the birth of Christ, God coming to us as a helpless infant to bring a new vision to the people of the world. While many seem disappointed that the Messiah did not come as a conqueror to overthrow the oppressors of the day, He did come to bring a change of heart to those that listen to His words. While change of heart seems like a long and grueling process, the end result is longer-lasting and rewarding as the relationship with God the Father is restored. Pastor Ken will be teaching from the prophet Isaiah's text found in Chapter 40, verses 1-11 in a sermon entitled, "Renewel." As part of worship, the pastor will also give a short "Young at Heart" message base on Mark 1:1-8 which tells of the ministry of John the Baptist. The choir will sing, "Watchmen, Tell Us of the Night" and the congregation will be singing Christmas hymns within the service.

 

     Worship time is 10 am at the Church located at 1970 clinton Street in Carlyle.

 

     ALL are welcome to worship with us on thes second Sunday of Advent as we will light a candle signifying "Peace," the peace of God that comes to all those who believe.
