Youth Jam Dec 2017

Youth Jam!

This was the first Youth Jam we’ve attended. Our youth minister had a

scheduling conflict that day, and since my son was the only one from our church

who signed up to attend, it led me to be the adult chaperone. Truly, I was glad

A Bulletin Insert Suggestion for November 27, 2017

Sunday, November 27, we begin a new Liturgical Year on the First Sunday in Advent. Consider what the four Sunday liturgies of Advent and the Holy Day and Sunday Liturgies of Christmas have to say to those preparing for baptism, confirmation and first communion.

 

The four Sundays of Advent have more to say than simply, “prepare”. We recall what our ancestors hoped for in a Messiah, we wait for the final coming of Christ (Advent I), we renew our commitment to justice (Advent II), we seek and recognize the presence of Christ (Advent III), … Continue reading…
