God's Is Bigger Than Covid
It's coming, its coming, its coming. Ready of not, Christmas is coming. It will be an unusual Christmas in a most unusual year. Christ comes to us amid the disappoints and discouragements of life and Christ will meet us this year wherever we may be found. Sunday's worship service will include the participation of some younger members of our church family. Whether you tune in on Sunday at 10:30 or later in the week I hope the service will fill you with love, hope and joy. God is bigger than COVID. God is sending us the best that God has. God is sending this gift again in the hopes that we will embrace it. Christ is coming. Will we receive him? Pastor Joanne
Observing Advent at Home
Let's do something together! During this last week of Advent, I ask that we all try to light an Advent Wreath of your own design or at least light one candle each evening and recite the Advent Prayer that is included below. This IS something we can do together, though apart. In this season of waiting and darkness we crave light, we crave hope, we crave the warmth of one another. May this simple ritual bring us closer to God and to each other as we wait in joyful hope for the coming of our Savior.
For the week of December 20, our theme is JOY.
The day of celebration and wonder is near. We wait with anticipation. God-With-Us, Emmanuel is born on Christmas. With joy we will once again welcome Him to our home and heart. Be with us Lord Jesus, we ask you to stay. Amen.
For Christmas, our theme is GOOD NEWS!
Jesus our Light has come! Thank you, God, for the gift of your Son who brings life to all who receive Him. Come Lord Jesus, there is room in our hearts for you. Be with us through all the days of our lives. Amen.
Pastor Joanne invites you to join us this and every Sunday morning for our live-streamed Facebook worship service at 10:30 am, preceded by 5 minutes of music for meditation to help folks get settled. Pajama attire and pets are welcome.
In-Person Worship: The Spring Creek Sanctuary is cautiously reopening to our members and friends who want to be a part of the worship service in-person. Currently, we are limiting the number that may be present to ten (This does not include those who are active participants such as the worship team or the technical team). We are taking all necessary precautions and feel that the environment is safe. We welcome you to call the office by Thursday, noon, to reserve a seat for in-person worship.Those who have attended have said that it was good to be back to worship in their church home once again. Seating is assigned to designated areas maintaining safe distancing. Masks must always be worn. Worshipers should plan to be seated by 10:25, the time we begin filming the live service broadcast. Copies of our Order of Worship are available on the stand by the sanctuary double doors. Pastor Joanne has more information.
God Is Still Speaking,
Let's listen together.
