At Good Shepherd during the Sundays in December we will follow an Oh Come Oh Come Emmanuel Advent worship series. Join us as we walk through Old Testament lessons that point to the coming Savior. Advent helps us prepare our hearts for Jesus coming at Christmas time and for his second coming at the end of time. Set aside the lists of presents to buy and look at what God has given you. God gave us wonderful gifts to prepare us for his Son including the gifts of baptism prefigured in the saving waters of the flood, gospel ministers preparing the way for the Lord, joy brought to us by the Servant of the Lord, and finally the gift of the Savior himself, promised to David, promised to us. Oh come oh come Emmanuel!
We pray that this series is a blessing for you this Advent season. You can order the coordinating symbols and power point images in the shop.
