Join us for worship this Sunday! 
10:30 a.m.

If you choose to join us in person, please follow these guidelines:
 
–  Face masks/coverings are required while you’re in the building. While we recognize that many in our congregation may be fully vaccinated, we cannot and will not restrict our worship to only vaccinated individuals. So for the sake of the body of Christ, we will do our part to protect those who may not yet be vaccinated, are immunocompromised, or are children.
– While we have been able to sing when we are outside in the open air, singing is not advisable when we are in an enclosed space. Please use the hymn portions of our worship as times to reflect on the verses, enjoy the instrumentation, or hum gently to yourself.
– We will continue to celebrate Holy Communion with pre-packaged elements.
– For the time being, we will ask that if you choose to engage in fellowship with others that you do so outside. There will be no gathering in the upstairs lounge before or after worship.
 
We thank you so much for all of your faithfulness through the changes and transitions and uncertainty. We will continue to work together to follow Christ and love our neighbors.

  • La cruz es el verdadero regalo de la Navidad
    by John Potter on December 2, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    Recuerdo esta imagen discordante: Fue en el servicio de Nochebuena a la luz de las velas en mi congregación de origen. Una pancarta que representaba a María y Jesús en el pesebre había sido colgada del techo en la parte delantera de la nave, ocultando completamente la gran cruz suspendida. Había visto esa pancarta los The post La cruz es el verdadero regalo de la Navidad appeared first on Living Lutheran.

Reading for Thursday, December 2
Malachi 3:1-4

See, I am sending my messenger to prepare the way before me, and the Lord whom you seek will suddenly come to his temple. The messenger of the covenant in whom you delight—indeed, he is coming, says the Lord of hosts.  But who can endure the day of his coming, and who can stand when he appears?

For he is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap; he will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he will purify the descendants of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, until they present offerings to the Lord in righteousness. Then the offering of Judah and Jerusalem will be pleasing to the Lord as in the days of old and as in former years.

Reading for Friday, December 3
Luke 1:68-79

“Blessed be the Lord God of Israel,
    for he has looked favorably on his people and redeemed them.
He has raised up a mighty savior for us
    in the house of his servant David,
as he spoke through the mouth of his holy prophets from of old,
     that we would be saved from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us.
Thus he has shown the mercy promised to our ancestors,
    and has remembered his holy covenant,
the oath that he swore to our ancestor Abraham,
    to grant us that we, being rescued from the hands of our enemies,
might serve him without fear, in holiness and righteousness
    before him all our days.
And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High;
    for you will go before the Lord to prepare his ways,
to give knowledge of salvation to his people
    by the forgiveness of their sins.
By the tender mercy of our God,
    the dawn from on high will break upon us,
to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death,
    to guide our feet into the way of peace.”

Reading for Saturday, December 4
Philippians 1:3-11

I thank my God every time I remember you, constantly praying with joy in every one of my prayers for all of you, because of your sharing in the gospel from the first day until now.  I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ.  It is right for me to think this way about all of you, because you hold me in your heart, for all of you share in God’s grace with me, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel.  For God is my witness, how I long for all of you with the compassion of Christ Jesus.  And this is my prayer, that your love may overflow more and more with knowledge and full insight to help you to determine what is best, so that in the day of Christ you may be pure and blameless, having produced the harvest of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ for the glory and praise of God.

Gospel for Sunday, December 5 – 2 Advent
Luke 3:1-6

In the fifteenth year of the reign of Emperor Tiberius, when Pontius Pilate was governor of Judea, and Herod was ruler of Galilee, and his brother Philip ruler of the region of Ituraea and Trachonitis, and Lysanias ruler of Abilene, during the high priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas, the word of God came to John son of Zechariah in the wilderness.  He went into all the region around the Jordan, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins, as it is written in the book of the words of the prophet Isaiah,

“The voice of one crying out in the wilderness:
‘Prepare the way of the Lord,
    make his paths straight.
Every valley shall be filled,
    and every mountain and hill shall be made low,
and the crooked shall be made straight,
    and the rough ways made smooth;
and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.’”
