Welcoming All, Empowered by Christ, Sent Forth to Serve

December 3, 2017: “Make Ready a people: #morehope”

It was just another day at the temple for Zechariah. It was his priestly turn to make sure everything was done properly and in good order. But it turned into something quite different when an angel showed up at the altar. Have you ever had a moment in your life after which you knew nothing would ever be the same? In the midst of great change, hope is always a welcome thing. Advent can remind us that God makes us ready for whatever unknown may come our way and calls us to be messengers of #morehope in an ever-changing world.

This is Pastor Mary’s first message in the series, “Angels Among Us.” We opened worship with “Angels Among Us.” The message is based on Luke 1: 5-25, 57-80. To read it, click here.

The Preschool/Kindergarten Sunday School class was blessed to have the angel Gabriel, pictured below, visit.
