LIGHTING THE ADVENT WREATH @ 10:30 AM
This Sunday we will gather in the Narthex to process in to church and Light the Advent Wreath at the beginning of the Service. Sam and Joe are the Lighters and Readers for this Sunday. After the Wreath is lit, we will go to the Treasure Room in the Education building for class.
These are the readings for the Second Sunday of Advent: Psalm 72:1-7, 18-19, The First Reading is Isaiah 11:1-10, The Second Reading is Romans 15:4-13 and the Gospel is Matthew 3:1-12.
“Let peace and justice rule every mountain and hill.” ~ Psalm 72:3 (Contemporary English Version)
UPCOMING PAGEANT REHEARSALS & PERFORMANCE
Following the Church Service we will hold a Blocking Rehearsal in the Church. All members of the Pageant Cast will need to stay for Rehearsal so they will know where to move and when to do it. We will also add the Angel to your Creche scene today. If you have not yet tried on your costume you will do it today. Our next rehearsal will be held on December 14, which is a Saturday, at 9:00 in the Church. This will be our dress rehearsal.
Arrival time for the Pageant on December 15th will be 9:45 AM. Thank you all for your time and effort.
For campus locations, please see Directions and Campus Map.
NEW STUDENTS – FIRST VISIT
Hello Parents and Guardians – if this is your student’s first time with us, please arrive a few minutes early to register your child.
We follow safe church practices, so its important that we know who’s in attendance, have parents(s) or guardian(s) check children in-and-out, and provide us us with any important details including contact info in the event of an emergency. Teachers are happy to help 🙂
Education building doors are locked 10 minutes after church service begins for added security…so give yourself a little extra time this first day. Teachers will be available to offer assistance to parents and children with registration, questions or any special needs – just introduce yourself and they’ll take it from there. Thanks so much and we look forward to meeting you!
