Fourth Sunday of Advent

JOIN US ON THE FOURTH SUNDAY OF ADVENT

December 23rd at 10:30am – Isaiah 11:1-9; Matthew 1:18-25

The fourth Sunday of Advent is Christmas Sunday.

Advent means “coming or appearing.” Each year at this time we remember, reflect and celebrate the coming of Jesus into this world. We also need to remember that even though Jesus has come once, Scripture reminds us He is coming again. The first time as Savior and Lord, the next time as risen conquering King.

At Christmas, we celebrate the birth of Jesus, the Messiah. The traditional Christmas scene is filled with images that contain shepherds, sheep, quiet nights and visitors. At Jesus’ second coming, the scene will be different. No shepherds or sheep, but Jesus Christ the King reigning in His kingdom with His people forever. May we make sure that we take time this advent to prepare to be welcomed into the kingdom when Jesus returns.
