Midweek Advent Worship (November 30)

We have another opportunity to prepare for Jesus' coming this Advent season.  Tomorrow night we have our only Wednesday evening service.  The time is 6:30 PM.

We will meditate on David's words in Psalm 27:1,13,14 with the theme:  Wait for the Lord.

The LORD is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear?  The LORD is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid? … I am still confident of this:  I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.  Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.

Happy Advent!
