THIS WEEK'S MESSAGE

God-Speaks-enews-sm2 image

Advent: Preparing through Worship

Speaker: Pastor Steve Durand

Series: God Speakers: Minor Prophets

Scripture Focus: Malachi (select verses)

The season of Advent is a time to look back to Christ’s first coming as a baby born in Bethlehem, and to look forward to his second coming when he will return to renew and redeem every part of fallen creation. It is therefore a time to prepare our hearts, to reflect upon the promises of God, and to anticipate the fulfillment of those promises. It is a time for remembering and rejoicing. And so, as we continue our sermon series this week in the Minor Prophets, we’ll take a closer look at what the book of Malachi has to say to us about this process of anticipation and preparation.
