First Sunday of Advent -- November 29, 2020
FOR NOVEMBER 29, 2020
Out of an abundance of care and caution, the people of Resurrection Lutheran Church, Moose Pass United Methodist Church, and Seward United Methodist Church continue to bring you an online worship experience. Even when we move toward gathering together, carefully, we recognize that it will be safer for many to continue with “virtual worship.”
Today is the First Sunday of Advent, with the theme of HOPE. Pastor Ben Bohart is providing the prayers today while Pastor Jim provides the message: “FINDING HOPE IN OUR UNCERTAINTIES.” We have several special Advent activities today. We have a lighting of the Advent candle followed by a song of response from Carolyn Roloff. Jamie and Raelene from the Lutheran VBS team are giving our children’s sermon. We also will have some traditional carols as part of our worship today.
Here are today’s Thank Yous:
—Thank you to Nathan Drake of Reawaken Hymns. We’ll be hearing quite a bit from Nathan over Advent.
—Thank you to the Victoria Methodist Church choir and orchestra for their version of “Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus.”
—Thank you to Carolyn Roloff for singing “Light One Candle to Watch for Messiah”. Written by Wayne L. Wold. Copyright Fortress Press. Page 630 of the Lutheran Hymnal.
