Advent begins! The word “Advent” means “coming,” and refers to the coming of Christ at Christmas, or even to his second coming. It is a season of anticipation and preparation for our gracious King. On Sunday, November 27th, Pastor Ruttan returns from study leave and we will light the advent candle of hope. We will sing and pray together. The Rev. Paul Sakasov will help Pastor Ruttan lead the music. And we will open our Bibles and explore John 13:1-30 and the significance of Jesus washing his disciples dirty feet. There will be Sunday School, nursery care, and fellowship time. We will also commission our new Communications Coordinator, Kristin Stouffer, to her new role!
