Dec 3, 2023 Worship Service

Good Morning and Happy First Sunday in Advent! Our journey to Welcome the Baby Jesus begins today. As we Worship, we will also have the lighting of the first Advent Candle. This Candle is a Symbol of Hope.

Hope in a struggling world. Hope when we feel lost. Hope for a new day, better and brighter that is coming soon.

Let us Worship God and prepare our hearts on the way to Christmas.

If you have an announcement, prayer request or for hymn or scripture readings, please contact us!  Messages may be left on the church telephone at (416)762-3960.
