HAPPY THANKSGIVING

May our hearts be full of gratitude,
Of thanks and celebration too.
May we appreciate what life brings,
And be thankful for each day new.


From Your Pastor

With the turn of the calendar, we move into the Christmas season. The last Sunday of November is the first Sunday of Advent. As a church, we will spend time in our gathering reflecting on the grace of God in sending his Son and express our joyful anticipation of his coming again.

The first Sunday of Advent is a time where we consider hope. In a day and age when hope seems to be a foreign idea or concept, the gospel tells us that through Jesus, we are reconciled to God. This is a sure and steady hope that produces settled confidence in God’s children. We also have hope that one day, the Son will come to claim his bride and we will be with him. At the start of Advent, hope in the gospel and the promises of God.

Next, Advent calls us to reflect on the peace that the gospel produces. As we hear the loud and turbulent noises of our culture, we have reason to rest. As God’s children, we have been reconciled to God and have peace with him. We are no longer enemies but friends. We can draw near to God with confidence and can have peace in life’s storms because of the work of Christ on our behalf.

The third Sunday of Advent brings the love of Christ to the forefront. There are not enough words in all the languages of the world to express the love of God displayed in the person of Jesus. Brothers, sisters...God loves you, and in this, we should rejoice. What a beautiful blessing it is to be loved by God! Yet while we were enemies, Jesus demonstrated his love for us through his sacrificial death on the cross.

And finally, joy. Follower of Christ, find joy this Christmas in the promises of God. The hope we have, the peace we experience, and the love of God on our behalf should produce an immeasurable joy in us. We are right with God; rejoice! We have assurance of salvation; rejoice! Our debt has been paid; rejoice! The angels sing before the throne, “Holy, Holy; Holy is the Lord God almighty!” Find joy in praising him for all that he has done!
