Bishop’s time with the Laity

Click on ”Sermons” above to view the latest streamed video.

Our theme for Advent and for Christmas is “Christ Comes to a Messy World”

When Jesus came to the world, it was far from perfect, and Jesus was needed. Further, he was born not in a home, but a messy stable. We anticipate Christ coming to the world in this season of a pandemic, that has disrupted most everyone’s life.

November 29: We begin the season of Advent with one of the prophet’s vision for what God will do. Isaiah 40:1-11 is the scripture for the day. The worship will focus on Hope, as we begin this great season. A special offering for Student Day will be received. The candle of Hope will be lit.

Rev Brad encourages you to follow the worship:

1.       On Facebook or later on the Website if you are not attending the Sunday worship services.  There is a bulletin attached with information.

2.       Drive-in and park near the church. Turn your FM radio to 107.5

3.       In-person inside the church.  Please be aware of social distancing and follow the same rules as schools and restaurants.  Remember singing is a 12’ distance.
