Advent Series – “The Light of Bethlehem Shines On”

Advent, 2019 @ Wheeler United Methodist Church
“The Light of Bethlehem Shines On”
 

Pastor David announces his sermon series for Advent, 2019 – “The Light of Bethlehem Shines On.” In one of the more familiar passages foretelling Jesus’ birth from Isaiah 9:2, we read, “The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.”[1]  Jesus came to earth to bring the light of salvation and hope to a dark world.  This year during Advent, Pastor David will help us discover once again the promises offered to us in Jesus’ birth, bringing us out of the depths of despair to the promise of a brighter tomorrow.  We’ll look at the various places of darkness that reside in many of our lives; and see how the promise of Jesus’ birth can help us get through them.  The weekly messages for Advent are:

  • 1st – In the Darkness of Despair, There Is the Light of Hope.
  • 8th – In the Darkness of Suffering, There Is the Light of Life.
  • 15th – In the Darkness of Oppression, There Is the Light of Salvation.
  • 22nd – In the Darkness of Fear, There Is the Light of Joy.
  • 24th – In the Darkness of Anxiety, There Is the Light of Peace.
  • 29th – In the Darkness of Uncertainty, There Is the Light of Wonder.
  • 5th (2020) – In the Darkness of Suspicion, There Is the Light of Devotion.

Make plans now to worship with us and make this a life-changing Advent Season.  We worship each Sunday at 10:30 a.m.  Worship is followed by a time of gathering for good food and conversation.  We look forward to worshipping with you and celebrating the light that comes into the world – Jesus Christ our Messiah! And for the first time this year, let me greet you appropriately – Merry Christmas!
