Good morning New Street Family,
Today's sermon, Pastor Dee-Ann relates the "Grinch" and "Scrooge" to her central message. No spoilers here. You'll have to watch the service. Please also give it a like, and share it too.
Today's special music is “Cold December Flies Away” sung by the New Street UMC Chancel Choir Recorded December 2021 and complemented by Christmas pictures of the "Windows of New Street UMC" each decorated by a member of the church.
“Sing to the Lord, who has done glorious things; proclaim this throughout all the earth. Shout and sing for joy, city of Zion, because the holy one of Israel is great among you.” Isaiah 12:5-6 (CEB)
On this third Sunday in Advent we light the candle of joy which represents the joy that the coming of Christ brings to the world.
In this season of Advent: May God give us hearts that are open to hope, feet that stand firm on God’s promises, eyes that are alert to the ways Christ comes among us, and hands that are ready to work for God’s kingdom. In the name of Jesus, our coming king we pray. Amen.
