November 29, 2020 Worship – 1st Sunday of Advent

If you would like to prepare your own Advent candles for worship, it’s very easy to do. Choose votive candles, tealights or any candles you have. Place four candles on any decorative plate and put it in a safe place for use during worship. Have your candle lighter or matches nearby and a safe means of disposing after lighting today’s candle.

We are encouraging all to use an Advent calendar this year to bring Scripture passages daily to our children. Pastor Theresa will have calendars with her at in person worship. If you’d like to pick up before or after worship, please do. Contact the pastor to make arrangements to get your calendar.

We also encourage daily acts of prayer that you can print out right now. The 2020 Advent Calendar starts today and runs through the end of December. Share it with your family and friends online.
