Second Sunday of Advent: Worship at 8:00 & 10:30 am

Icon1 Color 129

The Gospel for this Sunday:

Luke 3:1-6

Click Here to Read.


Forerunners and messengers advance the advent of our God. While John the baptizer’s voice in the wilderness may be the principal focus of the day, Malachi’s prophecy could as easily herald the coming Lord Jesus as forerunner of the Lord of hosts. Finally all the baptized are called to participate in the sharing of the gospel. In so doing we prepare the way for the coming of the Lord and assist all flesh in capturing a vision of the “salvation of God.”

Welcome Pastor Zelle!


Interim Pastor Mae Jean Zelle began her time with us last Sunday. Please introduce yourself to her and give her a warm welcome!
