GREETINGS, EVERYONE! TODAY at 7 pm, Rezound! Handbell Ensemble will be at FBC Cameron, 202 E. Ford St. This is a holiday concert from a professional handbell group who has performed with the Kansas City Symphony. For a taste of their sound, follow this link to their website. If you would like to go and travel as a group, we will leave from the church parking lot at 6:15. I anticipate returning by 9 pm.
Tomorrow is the second Sunday of Advent. As I mentioned last week, Advent means "coming" and is so-called because we remember the first coming of Christ into this world as a baby over 2000 years ago, and we look forward to His promised second coming. I encourage you to supplement your daily Bible reading schedule with the Advent Bible readings listed below. (If time constraints require, you may choose to substitute these readings for your regular devotional Scripture reading). Here are the suggested readings for this week. The first reading of the day is normally repeated across three consecutive days for reinforcement. Click on the link to go to the electronic version.
Monday, December 6, 2021: Psalm 126; Isaiah 40:1-11; Romans 8:22-25
Week of Prayer for International Missions ends tomorrow. We have highlighted a different missionary or missionary family serving with the International Mission Board each day.

BONUS: Here is a flashback from Tim Challies as he mused on how Christians choose to celebrate (or not to celebrate) Christmas. I hope you find it as helpful and thought-provoking as I did. Mind Your Christmas Imperatives
See you in church!
