Traditional Sunday Worship
December 3 | Join the story.
There is a reason why the various Christmas stories are so popular: people join the story, place themselves in it. A contemplative reading of Luke 2:1-20 to which we are invited to place ourselves in the story.
December 10 | Awe!
At a time of great misery, God acts. As is usual with God, divine action requires human participation and Mary chooses to be a vehicle for God’s work. How are we vehicles for God’s work? Luke 1:46-55.
December 17 | Praise and Thanksgiving!
The angels sang, so can we! Luke 2:8-14. Our Bell Choir, Choir, New Creation Ensemble and organ lead us in a celebration of the birth of Christ. This is a time to bring your friends and families!
December 24 | Join Jesus’ movement.
The point is not the baby, the point is where the baby takes us. Mark 1:9-18 serves to direct our attention to Jesus’ call to us
December 31 | Life Hacks
Social media and magazines are filled with what are called ‘life hacks’---ways of doing something well that aren’t widely known. A life hack for college students might be ’10 ways to fund your education without borrowing.’ On the day before New Years, what ‘life hacks’ does our faith give us? Proverbs 1:1-7; John 1:43-46
