2nd Sunday of Advent

“. . . as it is written in the book of the prophet Isaiah, “The voice of one crying out in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.”
Luke 3:4

All are invited to worship at Mingus View Presbyterian Church on Sunday, December 9th , as we observe the 2nd Sunday of Advent. Advent is a time of preparation and anticipation, awaiting the birth of the Christ child. The topic of Pastor Lois Hildenbrand’s sermon is “The Mute Will Speak . . . or Sing” (Luke 1:68-79). The choir will sing “Brightest and Best” with words by Reginald Heber and arranged by Robert J. Hughes Hymns for the day include “Prepare the Way”, “O Worship the King”, “Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus”, and “The Song of Zechariah.”

 

“The Gift of the Nutcracker”
A Study for Advent Season

The Nutcracker was first performed in 1892 and quickly became a holiday tradition. Our study for Advent takes a look at this Christmas classic in a new way – through the lens of faith. The author, the Rev. Matt Rawle, uses the iconic tale to help us understand God’s greatest gift of the Christ child and of the kingdom Christ came to build. Rev. Rawle, a pastor in the United Methodist Church, is considered the current “go-to” authority writing about the intersection of Christ and pop culture.

The Nutcracker study will begin on Wednesday, November 28th, at 10:00 a.m. at the church. Study books are available. Please see Susan Goe if you would like to have one.
