Advent Worship Theme – Journey to Bethlehem

Published December 1, 2013 in Worship

Our theme for worship throughout the season of Advent is the Journey to Bethlehem:
To Find Peace, Hope, Joy and Love.

The advent season introduces into the life of the congregation and worship several significant milestones:

  • It’s the beginning of the new liturgical calendar;
  • It’s the preparation time for the birth of Jesus;
  • It’s about the journey Joseph and Mary take to Bethlehem for the beginning of their new life together; and
  • Advent signals our time to reflect on our own journeys toward HOPE, LOVE, JOY and PEACE.

Each Sunday we focus on a different aspect of the Journey to Bethlehem. This week, December 1, 2013, is the First Sunday of Advent. We will focus on the Journey to Beth: To Find HOPE.

Scripture Readings: Isaiah 2:1-5 Psalm 122 Romans 13:11-14 Matthew 24:36-44
Sermon: “Hope is Not a Four-Letter Word”

The Sacrament of Holy Communion will be served during the December 1 worship service.
