Season’s greetings and PEACE to you–This Sunday, November 5th (8:30am) is the Second Sunday of Advent. It marks the second Sunday of a new liturgical year and follows a three year calendar cycle through the entire Bible. Advent season always begins with HOPE, followed by PEACE and the expectation of visitation by Jesus. See your Advent Candle liturgy for December 5th and read the scriptures, Malachi 3:1-4 and Luke 3:1-6. On this coming Sunday we also observe Holy Communion, so please have elements of bread and vine for each person in your household during the service.The service is a limited indoor worship with Live streaming via Facebook. This means the service is open to those either participating in the service or on the finance team and those who accompany them. On occasion others may attend service especially those who have difficulty with the virtual format. All on-site attendees are expected to continue safe distancing and Covid19 safety protocols as have become standard, as our service does include singing.
