Second Sunday of Advent    December 5, 2021

 Forerunners and messengers advance the advent of our God. While John the baptizer’s voice in the wilderness may be the principal focus of the day, Malachi’s prophecy could as easily herald the coming Christ as forerunner of the Lord of hosts. Finally all the baptized are called to participate in the sharing of the gospel. In so doing we prepare the way for the coming of Jesus and assist all people in capturing a vision of the “salvation of God.”

Celebrate this Christmas Season with
Abiding Hope

" THE PURPOSE OF THE CHURCH IS TO LOVE AS WE HAVE BEEN LOVED, TO FEED AS WE HAVE BEEN FED, TO CARE AS WE HAVE BEEN CARED FOR, LIVING AS THE BODY OF CHRIST IN THE WORLD"

     these new members with joy and loving hugs.

Big brother Henry witnessed the event along with sponsors Uncle Ryan and Aunt Amy Carlisle and cousins Alice and Penny Rose. A prayer shawl was given to Theo to honor the occasion. It was a joyful, happy baptism.
