Today is the third Sunday of Advent and we light the Joy candle.

Can you imagine the joy Mary felt as she held baby Jesus for the first time, or the joy people felt as word spread that the Messiah had been born? We hope you feel joy today as you remember the birth of Jesus and that he died to save you! We thank Jeremy Vangenderen for leading our worship service this morning. Please stay for fellowship time and Sunday School.
