November 28, 2021 | First Sunday of Advent

Forerunners and messengers advance the advent of our God. While John the baptizer's voice in the wilderness may be the principal focus of the day, Malachi's prophecy could as easily herald the coming Christ as forerunner of the Lord of hosts. Finally all the baptized are called to participate in the sharing of the gospel. In so doing we prepare the way for the coming of Jesus and assist all people in capturing a vision of the "salvation of God."

We continue to ask folks to mask when you come to church. The virus began to diminish some in Dauphin County but in recent days it has increased again. So we hope that the positivity rate will begin to go down again so that at some point we may be able to move forward and be able to adjust worship and the protocols. Our first concern is people's safety when you enter the church. Other churches in our Synod have gone back to masking so that the children and those unvaccinated can come to worship masked and be safer. The Task Force is planning on meeting again on December 6 to monitor the spread of the virus and make recommendations to council. We are continuing to mask for the safety of everyone including our children when they come to worship.

You will find the scripture readings and the message for this week in the links below. I offer you the peace of Christ and pray that you are all safe. Keep yourselves in prayer and scripture to keep yourselves strong and able to overcome any concerns that you are facing.
