THANKS TO ALL WHO WERE PART OF THE SNL THANKSGIVING ZOOM WORSHIP. What a wonderful opportunity change to interact with LWLC friends, share is faith conversation at the time of the sermon, lead sections of the on-line liturgy. It was a great way to cap off the Thanksgiving weekend.
VITRUAL WORSHIP continues at Living Waters Lutheran Church. The weather conditions and an escalating COVID infection rate has caused us to suspend our in-person worship. So, log-in and tune-in to our virtual worship through our website. This Sunday is the SECOND SUNDAY IN ADVENT! We will read the story where John calls people to repent, to clear the decks, to completely reorder their lives so that nothing gets in the way of the Lord’s coming.
ADVENT MIDWEEK BIBLE STUDY AND WORSHIP calls us to “keep vigil” in the Advent season. If you have an Advent Wreath in your home, have it available at the start of our time of study and prayer.
This second week calls us to prayerful waiting in preparation for the coming of Jesus. Drawing upon the idea that “wisdom begins in wonder,” the third week invites us to embrace imaginative wonderment at the things of God.
LWLC Reverse Advent Calendar. Advent Week 2: Lunch! This week, we are adding healthier, nonperishable lunch foods to our Reverse Advent Calendar collection. Suggestions include peanut butter, soups, canned fruit in juice and whole grain crackers. You and your family can still join us in our new way to mark the time of Advent and prepare to answer Jesus’ call to feed the hungry. Simply set aside an empty box or basket for their Advent collection. Then, each week of Advent, watch this email and our Facebook page for the items we will ask you to find and place in the box. After Christmas, you’ll have a full box to take to your local food pantry to donate at a time when food pantries typically see their donations decline. Last week, we added breakfast foods like oatmeal, pancake mixes and coffee.
THIS WEEK AT LWLC:
- Planning Christmas Eve Worship: Thursday, December 3 at 6:30 PM
- Sunday Night Live Confirmation Class will Zoom, Dec. 3 at 7:00 PM to study, “I Believe in the Holy Spirit”
