“These Testify of Me:  Jesus Fulfills the Scripture”

Advent Midweek Worship Services

Wednesdays, December 6th, 13th & 20th

4 p.m & 7 p.m.

Advent is a busy time for many of us.  Midweek worship during Advent is meant to be a respite, a time to slow down, if only for a while, in order to reflect on the event that has prompted all of the holiday activities in the first place–the coming of the Son of God, our Lord Jesus Christ, in the flesh.  The intriguing title of this Advent series, These Testify of Me:  Jesus Fulfils the Scripture will be our midweek Advent theme this year.  Based on the Transfiguration and Jesus’ teaching to the disciples in Luke 24, we will meditate on Jesus as the One who fulfills the Law of Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms–the whole Hebrew Scripture.  Each week will focus on one of these traditional divisions of the Old Testament.

The themes for each midweek service are:

Advent 1:
Jesus Fulfills the Law (Torah)
December 6
Advent 2:
Jesus Fulfills the Prophets
December 13
Advent 3:
Jesus Fulfills the Psalms/Writings
December 20

These midweek services will again be offered at both 4:00 & 7:00 p.m.. The 4:00 p.m. service is especially intended for families of the day school, families with small children, as well as seniors who may not care to be out at night. Advent dinners sponsored by the Junior Youth will be offered between the services at 5:00 p.m. in Concord Hall.

Menus for the Advent dinners which begin at 5:00 p.m. are as follows:

December 6th Advent Meal Week 1
Pasta Dinner with Chicken Florentine or a red sauce, salad, bread, dessert & drinks.

December 13th Advent Meal Week 2
Chili & Soup Dinner with Chili, chicken noodle soup, crackers, bread, vegetable tray, dessert & drinks.

Please help support the Hope Junior Youth by attending the Advent dinners. Proceeds will go towards the trip to the Passion Play in Arkansas this summer.
