GREETINGS, EVERYONE! Tomorrow is the first Sunday in the traditional church season of Advent. 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 the promised second coming of Christ on the clouds of glory. While I won't be preaching an entire series of Advent messages, I am encouraging you to supplement (or replace) your regular Bible reading schedule with Advent Bible readings. The Sunday Scriptures will be read in the worship service each week. But the daily readings will be listed in this e-mail for your convenience. Here are the suggested readings for this week (an unusual feature of these daily readings is some are repeated across multiple days):
Week of Prayer for International Missions begins tomorrow. We will be highlighting a different missionary or missionary family serving with the International Mission Board each day. For the first day of prayer, follow this link.
Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions will be received during December. Our church goal is $1200.
