Dear Friends in Christ:
The days are quickly passing, and soon we will be celebrating the coming of Our Lord on Christmas Day. This Sunday is the 4th Sunday in Advent. We will hear the story of the angel Gabriel's visit to the virgin Mary: The Annunciation. Worship this Sunday is at 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM with live streaming again at the 9:00 AM service.
If you are planning to worship with us on Christmas Eve at one of our four services, please make your reservation this weekend. There are still some sanctuary seats available at every service, and plenty of seats in the narthex as well. If you can't get to church tomorrow, please call the church office (342-1963) and leave a message with your reservation and names of persons. We need to know how many to expect on Christmas Eve.
I want to invite you all to join us on-line for a Christmas Concert by the Otisville Brass. They are a brass quintet that includes two members of our congregation. It is a virtual concert that you can access on-line on our FaceBook page, just like the live streamed Sunday service. The Otisville Brass Concert is this Sunday on-line at 4:00 PM. It is a benefit for the GMIC Warming Station. Gifts can be mailed or brought to church, checks made out to GMIC. A great way to enjoy some wonderful music, and perhaps support a very worthy cause.
Faith, not fear!
We welcome you to praise God each Sunday
The center of our life as a congregation is our worship of God, Whom we know as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Our worship is focused on the Word of God and the Holy Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We gather together for prayer, praise and thanksgiving on Sundays and many other occasions.
