Christmas Gifts for the Seminary Families

Again this Advent we're purchasing Christmas presents for children of the families at the seminary in St. Louis.

There is a tree in the narthex with tags on it.

Pick a tag and purchase a gift for that child.

Sign the sheet so Sharon knows which tag you took.

Then bring back your gift by December 8th with the tag attached.

Last Sunday's Sermon

What are we waiting for? We learned from God's Word that we're waiting for Jesus. He teaches us to be ready by measuring our days and believing in Him. Listen to the sermon here.

If you missed the service or know someone who would like to listen, here's an audio of the service: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1FEn4_uk4E2J8Ik7DgbLoIa8405cblWCx

This Coming Sunday

First Sunday in Advent

December 1st

Christ's Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem.

 

There seems to be a discrepancy between the Gospel writers about Jesus' ride into Jerusalem. Matthew says there were two donkeys but all the others mention only one. The best explanation is that there were indeed two but Matthew is the only one to mention both. Most likely the mother donkey was pulled behind since the colt (her son) had never carried a rider before. It's common to bring the mother along when a colt is first being trained to carry a load. Come this Sunday to hear how we ride with our King Jesus and pull our sinful flesh behind on the way to the heavenly city Jerusalem.
