Preparing for Worship on the First Sunday of Advent 2015

 As we gather for the First Sunday of Advent at North Raleigh Church of the Nazarene the sounds of Christmas are beginning to fill the air.  The Worship Center is decorated for the season and I plan to launch a new teaching series for this season.  This is the perfect time of the year to invite a friend, neighbor and family member to join you at church. Jesus came to "seek and to save those who are lost."  We also need to be sensitive to those who need to experience the love of God in their life.

I hope you will plant to be with us each Sunday of Advent and experience the work of God in your life.   Here is the order of worship we have prepared for this Sunday:

We continue in our worship by lighting the first candle on the Advent wreath.

“Come now, let’s settle this,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow. Though they are red like crimson, I will make them as white as wool.” (Isaiah 1:18, NLT)

Today’s MTheessage:   Part 1: The Forecast        
For some of us, the word “snow” is a four-letter word in every sense. But in this Advent series we’re going to see that when God causes His snow to fall in our lives, everything changes.  whole reason that Christmas exists is because Jesus came to make our sins white as snow. Let it snow!
