Called to Prepare

This Sunday we are going to get a jump on Advent (it officially starts next week, December 3rd) as we look at the ways God prepared Zechariah and Elizabeth for the coming of the Messiah in Luke 1:1-25.

It’s hard to imagine the joy and anticipation that was in the heart of Zechariah and Elizabeth as the silence of 400 years was broken by a word from the Lord. After all that time, God was speaking to them!

God also wants to speak to us this Christmas. He may not send an angel to us, but if we are listening, He will speak. It may be through a child, a stranger, a song, a sermon, or through the familiar but newly energized words of scripture. Listen! What is God saying to you this Christmas?

See you in church! We will be decorating the church right after the 10:30 service!

Songs we’re singing this week:

8:00 a.m. — “Come Thou Long Expected Jesus” and “O Come, O Come, Emanuel”

10:30 a.m. — “My Soul Magnifies the Lord”, “A Christmas Alleluia” and “What a Beautiful Name”
