Lighting of the Advent Candle
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor,
Mighty God,
Everlasting Father,
Prince of Peace.
We light this candle as a sign
of our waiting hope and for the coming Christ.

Message: Pastor Brian
“Refuge When There Is No Refuge”
Response of Faith Heidelberg Catechism 28
Q. How does the knowledge of God’s creation and providence help us?
A. We can be patient when things go against us, thankful when things go well, and for the future we can have good confidence in our faithful God and Father that nothing in creation will separate us from his love. For all creatures are so completely in God’s hand that without his will they can neither move nor be moved.
“Amazing Grace” 
“What Feast of Love”
