Preparing for Renew gathering for Advent on December 21st

See you on Sunday at 10 AM as we gather for worship and the word at the Revival Building (813 7th St). Read this rundown of the key emphases, happenings and overall announcements to read before we gather to sing, pray, share and celebrate.

We begin the morning by praying and singing together, including Advent songs:
+ O Come All Ye Faithful,
+ O Come, O Come Emmanuel,
+ What Child Is This,
+ This is War,
+ O Holy Night,
+ Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.

The Advent season invites us to wait for the coming Savior. // Read ahead: Luke 2:1-20

Advent: Hope Starts Here

12/14/14. The Advent season invites us to wait for the coming Savior. Everything changed when Jesus arrived, when God the King came as a Child. But no one knew what was coming, nor who was coming and when, except Mary. She was an unlikely yet blessed young woman who rejoiced in God her Savior and lived in His joy.

This week in Advent we rejoiced with Mary and the words of her song, The Magnificat (Luke 1:26-56).

Here Comes the Hero (The Revelation)

12/7/14. Week 39 of EPIC: Following the Hero of God’s Story // We enter the Advent season by skipping ahead to the end of the Beginning and the beginning of the End. We’ve followed the Hero of God’s Epic Story from the Garden to the Cross, and now we see Him coming again in Glory.

The whole Bible is about Jesus and one day, on the best Day, we will trade this world and these bodies for a whole new world, the New City, where God will be our Light and there will no longer be any suffering, shame, pain, or destruction. All that God desires will become whole, beautiful; better than it’s original design. Jesus will wrap up the scroll of History to unfold the future of never-ending joy for all who know Him and trust in Him.

In this the sermon we consider the major themes, emphasis and visions in the book of Revelation (no small feat), and hopefully be overcome with theglory of Jesus our risen King. The King.

Truly Jesus is the Hero of God’s Epic Story.
