Advent - Christmas Schedule

“The true light that was coming to every man was coming into the world.” John 1:9

 There are many things about this time of year, which I enjoy, but one thing that I do not like at all is how dark it is. It is dark when you get up in the morning and dark when you come home from work or school. I long for the long days (and warm temperatures of the summer.)

 There are many things that we do to make the best of it. We put Christmas lights in our yard and on our Christmas trees. We light candles on our Advent wreaths. We try to bring some light to this dark time of year.

 That is what both Advent and Christmas are all about, bringing light into a world that has been darkened by sin, evil, and death. The good news is that the light that has come into the world is not just a small twinkling light, but the biggest flash of glory that has ever come into the world. God send His own Son to save us from our sin, misery, and death. John writes that in Christ we behold the glory of God. (1:14)

 It is Jesus who takes away our sin, brings goodness back into the world, and gives us the gift of everlasting life. He is the true light who comes to us. He invites us to leave the darkness of sin and misery for His light of righteousness, faithfulness, and life.

 Our Advent and Christmas theme this year is, “In Christ, the Light Shines in the darkness.” We will have three Advent Services on Thursdays at 7:00 pm:

            Thursday  Dec  7 – Genesis 1:3 “Light, God’s First Gift”

                                       Dec 14 – Isaiah 9:2 “Light Takes away the Gloom”

                                       Dec 21 – Ephesians 5:8 “Children of the Light”

 Christmas Eve Worship is at 7:00 pm “Heaven Opens with the Glory of God.”

 Christmas Day Worship at 9:00 am – John 1:5 “The Light Shines in the Darkness”

 New Year’s Eve Worship at 7:00 pm – Psalm 119:105 “God Word Lights our Path in the New Year.”

 The lights of our decorations and trees remind us that the Light of the World has come. He is our Savior Jesus Christ. May this Advent and Christmas season fill each of our hearts with the light of Christ.

 Wishing you a blessed Advent and Christmas Season,

Pastor Don Hougard
