We are in the season of Advent which marks a "beginning".  For the church, it is the beginning of the church year.  For individuals, Advent can mark the beginning of a faith journey.  Christmas is the season we rejoice in the coming of the Christ child, born to become the "Light" in the world of darkness.  Each Sunday prior to Christmas, we explore the kind of Light Jesus brings into the world, the first Sunday, of how Christ brings "Hope" into the world.  This coming Sunday, December 9, we light a candle to commemorate the "Peace" that Christ brings.  What kind of "Peace" do we refer to?  There is obviously not peace around the world as we read of conflict between people and governments.  Pastor Ken Schafer will address the "Peace" that comes in "The Way" of Jesus as he refers to the scripture found in Luke 3:1-6.  The message is entitled, "The Way of Peace" as the pastor talks of the 'refinement' a person experiences accepting Christ as Savior. 
Worship also involves Christmas hymns, a "Young at Heart"message, and this week, a special duet by two choir members sharingtheir talents with the congregation. 



     ALL are invited to worship with us!
