With the season of Advent we enter a new Church  Year.  For the next six months our Sunday worship will follow the life of Christ, lived and died for us that we might live with him. We will “watch” him be born (Christmas), live a holy life revealing him as our God and Savior (Epiphany), suffer and die (Lent & Holy Week), rise to life again (Easter), ascend to his heavenly throne (Ascension) and keep his promise to send the Holy Spirit to draw us and keep us near to him in faith (Pentecost). Advent is the season of preparation for his coming into our world, which has happened (Christmas) and will happen again (Judgment Day).  The color of Advent (altar paraments and Pastors’ stoles) is blue. Jesus told his disciples in today’s Gospel lesson (Mark 13) that the Son of Man will come “on clouds”. He will come as he left them at his ascension – through the sky for all to see.  The blue of the sky becomes for believers a color of expectation and hope for Jesus’ coming again.

Travel Opportunity  Do you like to travel? Have you always wanted to see lands mentioned in the Bible? We have a special opportunity for you. Pastor Dorn will be leading a Footsteps of Paul tour in June 2022. It seems like a long time away, but it will be here fast. There will be an informational meetings on December 2 and 15, at 6:30 PM, for anyone interested. No obligation required. This trip is open for anyone, so feel free to invite family and friends. Brochures are also available in the back of church.
