Advent Season

This season of Advent, a season of preparation and anticipation, leads us to encouraging words of the prophet Isaiah this Sunday (Isaiah 11:1-10.) They are words we believe to be fulfilled in the life of Jesus. This season also leads us to the Lord's Table, the place where God welcomes and forgives us all.

This second Sunday of Advent also provides wonderful opportunity to hear from Chase and Audrey Arndt. Chase and Audrey are missionaries serving in Kenya. First Church has supported the Arndt's for several years; we are blessed to have them share of their ministry at each service this Sunday. There will also be opportunity to contribute to a Love Offering in support of their work.
