First Sunday of Advent
UM Student Day
Right now there are UMC young people who might not have the resources to attend college. We can help them through the United Methodist Student Day offering. Because we give, these students can be supported as they prepare for a life that unites faith with knowledge. Donations can be made starting today and through all of December either through your electronic giving or by check sent to the church designating your gift “Student Day”.
CALL TO WORSHIP
You know what time it is,
How it is now the moment from you to wake from sleep.
For salvation is nearer to us now that when we became believers;
The night is far gone, the day is near.
Let us then lay aside the works of darkness
And put on the armor of light.

PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING
Almighty God, giver of every good and perfect gift,
Teach us to render to you all that we have and all that we are,
That we may praise you, not with our lips only,
But with our whole lives,
Turning the duties, the sorrows, and the joys of all our days
Into a living sacrifice to you;
Through our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
