Scripture includes: Isaiah 11:1-10 and Romans 15:4-13

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Grow Peace

The Jewish people who had followed God for centuries, and from the “root of Jesse” a new leader would be born, a savior. And it’s this savior who teaches (and re-teaches) us how to live in peace with one another, not erasing differences, but learning to live in the kind of harmony God desires for us. Can we grow this kind of peace in our lives and in this world?

Today is the Second Sunday of Advent, the inaugural season of the Christian year. Advent is a time of spiritual preparation for the coming of Christ; thus, it is a season of both joyous and solemn expectation. The liturgical color is purple, symbolic of a spirit of preparation.

 

Advent Candle of Peace Lighting – FBC Kids Children’s Ministry   

We light the candle of Peace, knowing full well that peace is elusive. May we trust that even where there is war and discord, God is never absent from us, but is always gently leading us to new possibilities.

Scripture includes: Isaiah 2:1-5 and  Romans 13:11-14

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Wake Up and Get Ready

Our lectionary texts for Advent are meant to prepare us for the coming of Christ. While the rest of the world skips forward to the birth of Jesus on Christmas, in worship, we wait together in prayerful anticipation of the powerful moment of God-with-us. Isaiah asks us if we’re ready for the hopeful future Christ brings. Romans wakes us up to the new reality of Christ-in-our-midst, listening for new ways to live into our responsibilities as Christ’s followers. During the season of Advent, we need to wake up and get ready for all Christ brings into our midst this Christmas.

Today is the First Sunday of Advent, the inaugural season of the Christian year. Advent is a time of spiritual preparation for the coming of Christ; thus, it is a season of both joyous and solemn expectation. The liturgical color is purple, symbolic of a spirit of preparation.

Scriptures include:  Psalm 46 and Colossians 1:11-20

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “A Thanksgiving Prayer

God has given us the gift of redemption and reconciliation to God in Jesus Christ, and God has also given us a community of faith into which we can live our gratitude to God for that immense mercy. As we recognize how Christ reigns in our lives on Christ the King Sunday, we hold in tension how God is so many things: a king who suffers and serves, a Creator who enters our midst as a vulnerable baby. And for the gift of a God who knows and understands us, loves us and gives us grace, we give thanks, just as Paul did for the church in Colossae.

 

Today is Christ the King/Reign of Christ Sunday, the final Sunday of the season after Pentecost and the liturgical church year, which begins anew with the first Sunday of Advent next week. The focus of today’s worship is God’s ultimate victory and reign through Jesus Christ, punctuated by Christ’s unique approach to kingship, in service and love of God and others. The liturgical color is white, symbolizing the purity and light of Christ.

Scriptures include:  Acts 24:10-16 and John 14:5-7, 11-12, 15-17

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Following The Way

This year, our stewardship emphasis is Following The Way of Jesus because we recognize that none other than the Son of God can move our hearts to the kind of life of generosity and love we are called to as followers of The Way. How can we, like the disciples and apostles before us, live into that calling from God in Jesus Christ?
