Continuing the work of Jesus. Peacefully.  Simply.  Together.

Our theme for Advent 2017 is built around Mary’s pray in Luke 1:38, “Here am I, the servant of the Lord:  let it be with me according to your word.” Mary is giving voice to an active commitment.  Mary is expressing a strong desire to be part of God’s plan.  So we are invited this Advent season, along with Mary, to make our prayer to God: “Yes! Let it be!”

December 3         Advent 1:  Let it be   Hope
Scripture              Isaiah 64:1-9, Psalm 80:1-7,17-19
Message              Pastor Kay Gaier
We awaken to God’s purpose, which begins in darkness—whether seed in the ground, child in the womb, or new self in the soul, we use this time to wait, watch, and prepare for dramatic signs of God’s presence in our midst.  God is working to form us in God’s image. It is time to get ready.

December 10       Advent 2:  Let it be so   Peace
Scripture              Isaiah 40:1-11, Psalm 85:1-2, 8-13
Message              Pastor Kay Gaier
We long to be comforted. Moving from uncertainty and fear, we call upon God to make things ready—the mountains leveled, the paths made straight, our hearts prepared.  These scriptures invite us to slow down.  We yearn for the day when faithful love and truth shall meet, when righteous and peace shall kiss

December 17       Advent 3:  Let it be whole   Joy
Scripture               Isaiah 61: 1-4, Luke 1:26-38
Message               Pastor Kay Gaier
Rejoicing in God’s comfort, we catch God’s vision of Shalom. If we are willing to both embrace the vision and to work passionately toward its fulfillment, we can be participants we can be participants in the joy God seeks to bring into the world.

December 24      Advent 4:  Yes!  Let it be now   Love
Scripture             Luke 1:39-55
Message             Pastor Kay Gaier
Mary’s Magnificat echoes Hannah’s song of praise and predicts God’s reign as if it has already happened.  Grand mysteries, visions and hopes are today’s theme: ancient promise, royal lineage, power brought down, the poor lifted up, secrets revealed.

 December 21    The Longest Night Service

December 24    Christmas Eve   Yes!  Let it be with you and me.
Scripture            Luke 2:1-20
Message            Pastor Kay Gaier
This is a night for rejoicing—a night to embrace the light that shines in the darkness.  Love took flesh in the watches of the night. It happens again and again every time we carry Christ’s love and light into the dark places and moments around us.  Let us be Christ-light bearers as we carry Christmas into the night.

December 31     Happy New Year!
