Preparing for the First Sunday of Advent at Gastonia First Wesleyan Church

 Tomorrow is the First Sunday of Advent 2016.  I am so excited as we prepare for our first Christmas Season at Gastonia First Wesleyan Church!  

Prepare the way of the Lord. 

The fist Sunday of Advent is a time for all God's children to gather into His house to hear the Word of the Lord concerning the coming of the Lord! 

Invite your family and friends to join us this first Sunday of Advent! 

Here is the order of worship we have prepared for tomorrow:

We plan to begin with a warm and pleasant welcome to all who gather and invite us to worship the Lord! We then lift our voices in song to the Lord:

Now is the time to draw our attention to the Advent Wreath for the lighting of the first candle.

Following the announcements the choir presents a great song of the Christmas Season for today's offering:

The we stand to sing a favorite.... 

Following a time of prayer - we quiet our hearts for a special presentation:

With hearts prepared we now hear the Word of the Lord in the first message of a new Teaching Series for Advent:

“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
