Advent Service: How to Wait For the End – Wait Prepared

Advent Services 2017.jpg

Join us in anticipating the coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ this Advent season as we consider what we confess in The Apostle’s Creed, “He will come to judge the living and the dead.” Beginning at 7 p.m. on the three Wednesdays in December before Christmas, we come together for a short, mid-week Advent service of prayer and meditation on “How to wait for the end.”

Wednesday, December 6: Wait Prepared
Scripture: Matthew 24: 36-51
Hymn: "Arise, O Christian People" LSB 354

We invite you to join in fellowship while enjoying coffee and dessert in the Lounge before each Advent service beginning at 5:45 until 6:45 p.m.

We encourage households or groups of members to get involved in our celebration of Advent.

  • First, we invite you to host one of the Advent Fellowship Hours on December 6, 13, or 20. We ask that hosts bring sweets for roughly 20 guests, and arrive at 5:30 to make coffee, set up and clean up before the service at 7 p.m.

  • Or, light a candle on the Advent wreath during the Sunday Divine Worship services on December 3, 10, 17, or 24. The pastor will invite you forward at a designated time during the services to light the candle(s).

Please add your name to the sign-up sheet on the church bulletin board or call the church office at 312-642-7172.
