Worship: Advent 1B (December 3, 2017)

Bulletin here.

Keep watch for the unexpected coming of Christ! Its unexpectedness, however, does not change its certainty (note the Theme Verse) or our prayer (note the Prayer of the Day). Rather, the coming of Christ defines our present time because we know that he comes with unexpected judgment on the unbelieving world and unexpected grace for his people. We are filled with hope, with love, and with light. With anticipation in our hearts, we long for the fulfillment, “Come, Lord Jesus!”
