More about Worship.


The First Sunday in Advent,
November 29, 2020

Rev. Will White began a new Worship Series
“Company’s Coming”.
The First Sermon was This Place is a Mess!


The Scriptures were
Isaiah 64:1-9 and Mark 13:24-37

Who doesn’t like Advent?
It is a season of excitement and anticipation and joy.
Lots and lots of joy.

Even when we acknowledge that we aren’t ready for what is coming,
for the realm that is promised, for the kingdom we hope for.
We admit we have fallen short;
we confess that we are wrapped up in ourselves and in things that don’t last;
we admit that our watchful waiting has fallen by the wayside.

And yet, in this season, there is joy.
And we have a sense that we can start all over again, because
"Company’s Coming.”
