 Seasons of Sorrow: The Pain of Loss & The Comfort of God – Led by Scott & Heidi Shepler (Fellowship Hall) Now thru March 3.

After the death of his twenty-year-old son in November 2020, reformed pastor Tim Challies began to process his grief through writing. In this book, Tim shares real-time reflections from the first year of grief—through the seasons from fall to summer—introducing readers to what he describes as the “ministry of sorrow.”

Living Life BackwardHow Ecclesiastes Teaches Us to Live in Light of the End – Led by Nick Orell (Kitchen) Now thru March 3

What constitutes a meaningful life? We seek fulfillment in success, prosperity, recognition, relationships, and even self-sufficiency, but we always seem to come up short. If you feel you are coming up empty in your life and need a bigger vision and greater purpose, this accessible study of Ecclesiastes by David Gibson will show you that all of your hope for meaning lies in getting to know your Creator.

2| Morning Worship |10:45am

Pastor Jeff Zehnder will be preaching on Zechariah 12: 10-13:1 “Come to the King and Be Cleansed”

The King is Coming. Zechariah prepares us. This morning, come to the Lord: “Come to the King and Be Cleansed” (Zechariah 12:10-13:1). This King did not come just as a figurehead or a royal authority. He had a specific mission: to bring spiritual restoration. We will continue setting up the advent nativity and we will pray for our covenant children.

3|Evening Worship

7pm Christmas Eve – Evening Worship Service – “We have come to worship him” (Matthew 2:2), said the Magi to Herod. The Christmas Eve Candlelight Service is a simple but elegant reminder that into this dark world, a great light shines: Jesus, who is “Light of the world” (John 8:12). Offerings received on Christmas Eve night will go to the Look/After Fund, for PCA pastors or their widows in need, which include missionaries as well.

Zechariah points to the Nativity: “The King Comes in Humility” (Zechariah 9:9-10).
