As Advent begins again this year we gather on Wednesday evenings in services which focus on the divine gifts that come down to us through the birth of Jesus. Each week in the series, sermons “unwrap” one of the precious treasures delivered to us in the holy Child wrapped in swaddling clothes. Hymns in the series include “Comfort, Comfort Ye My People,” “O Lord, How Shall I Meet You,” “Hark the Glad Sound” and “Lift Up Your Heads, Ye Mighty Gates.”

Week 1(Nov. 29): The Gift of Hope (Matthew 12:15-21): The people of Israel waited in hope for the promised Messiah. We now wait in hope for his return on the Last Day.

Week 2(Dec. 6): The Gift of Love (John 3:13-17): The steadfast love of God is revealed in the gift of his Son. As the redeemed people of God we share his love with others.

Week 3(Dec.13): The Gift of Peace (John 14:25-27): In Christ Jesus we have peace with God. We now share that good news of peace with the world.

Week 4(Dec.20): The Gift of Life (John 1:1-5): Through faith in Jesus we have forgiveness and life, a life of love and service now in his name and eternal life in his presence.
