Please join us this Advent season for worship as we celebrate Jesus’ coming into our world with the theme: “Wait upon the Lord!” The season of Advent is characterized by waiting—waiting upon the Lord for his presence to be revealed to us on Christmas. During our Advent worship we will look back in Scripture at those who waited upon the Lord for his promises to come to pass through the Christ Child. We also look forward, contemplating how we should wait upon the Lord in this present moment of our lives, as God continues to make himself known to us today!
Advent marks the beginning of a new Church Year. The term “advent” is derived from a Latin word that means “coming”. Our Advent worship will lead us to experience the Hope, Peace, Joy and Love of our coming Savior! In worship we see how God used His prophets of old to proclaim repentance for the forgiveness of sins that enables Jesus to come into our hearts today!
In addition to our regular weekend worship, during Advent season we will have a special opportunity to welcome Jesus into our hearts as Good Shepherd will host midweek Advent Worship Services for the first four Wednesdays in December at 7:00 PM.
Each week will focus on a different aspect of waiting on the Lord in faith, hope, joy and gratitude. Every Wednesday in Advent there will be a mealtime from 5:30 PM – 6:45 PM in the Gathering Room. We will have family activities to help prepare families for the coming of Jesus. Please join your Good Shepherd family for Advent worship as we faithfully, “Wait upon the Lord!”
