Worship Calendar December 2019

Worship with us every Sunday at 10:00 am! Nursery Care and Sunday School provided for younger disciples.

The Christ Child did not arrive in the world in a puff of smoke. He grew, slowly, in Mary’s womb. As a beautiful flower takes time to grow from a seed, the baby boy Jesus took time to grow. It gave Mary and Joseph some time to prepare. This December we prepare ourselves for the birth, for the new life blossoming in the cold midwinter. We follow the prophesies of Isaiah, proclaiming a Messiah would come, a new creation would break forth through from the soil nourished for centuries.

December 1: Hope Prepares the Soil

Isaiah 2:1-5

December 8: Peace in the Roots

Isaiah 11:1-10 & Matthew 3:1-12

December 15: Joyful Cantata Blossoms

Isaiah 35:1-10
