The Third Sunday in Advent

Rejoice as Christ Comes!

The coming of Christ into the world the first time created joy like none other. His reappearing will bring unimaginable joy to all who really know him and trust in him. The better we know God’s grace to us in forgiving all our sins and his concern for all our needs, the more we will rejoice in him as we wait his Second Advent. Come, Lord Jesus!

Here is God's Word for this coming Sunday and Monday that gives us joy as we prepare for Christ's Second Coming:
Nehemiah 8:9-18
Philippians 4:4-7
Luke 3:7-18

"I rejoiced with those who said to me, 'Let us go to the house of the LORD.'" (Psalm 122:1) God-willing, I will see you and worship with you this coming Sunday or Monday.

      - In Christ, Pastor Jon Klein
