From the Pastor
“Suddenly two angels appeared asking,
“Men of Galilee, why do you stand here looking into the sky?
This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven,
will come back in the same way you have seen Him go into heaven.”
In His ascension, Jesus didn’t just leave His disciples physically, He also left them to resume the lives to which He had called them. The Lord gives each of us many different callings in life. We are Husbands and Wives, Brothers and Sisters, Employees and Friends.
We serve, give, work, and play. All of this is a gift from God.
Sometimes we get so busy with His callings in life, we forget He’s coming back.
Advent is a four-week reminder and opportunity to focus on His return.
This is a teaching that is fading in the Christian Church. We need to reclaim it.
This year, we are going to celebrate the season of Advent with the following focus:
PREPARE, BEHOLD, ADORN! Reclaiming the Season of Advent
We will align and dedicate our worship services and studies to this task. We will provide families
Devotions to use. We will party, prepare and adorn our church for Christmas. Together, we will focus on His return.
In His Grip,
Pastor Guy Roberts
P.S. We eagerly await Him asking, "Is He here yet?"
