Scripture of the Day

1 I call to you, Lord, come quickly to me;

    hear me when I call to you.

2 May my prayer be set before you like incense;

    may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice.

3 Set a guard over my mouth, Lord;

    keep watch over the door of my lips.

4 Do not let my heart be drawn to what is evil

    so that I take part in wicked deeds

along with those who are evildoers;

    do not let me eat their delicacies. -- Psalm 141:1-4

Mid-week Advent Services Begin Wednesday, Dec. 7

Please join us for our annual mid-week Advent services on December 7, 14, & 21. Each of these Wednesdays during Advent, we will gather at 6 pm for a free-will all-congregational supper and then gather for a 7 pm service in the sanctuary. The themes for this year’s services will be peace, joy, and hope. These services are a great tradition to prepare you hearts during the reflective, penitential season of Advent in anticipation of the celebration of Christ’s birth on Christmas Eve.
