(Congregational response: "He is our God; we are His people.")
AFFIRMATION OF FAITHFrench Confession (1571); Art. 23
We believe that the ordinances of the law came to an end at the advent of Jesus Christ, and the ceremonies are no more in use; yet their substance and truth remain in the person of him in whom they are fulfilled. Moreover, we must seek aid from the law and the prophets for the ruling of our lives, as well as for our confirmation in the promises of the gospel.
WE WELCOME YOU TO OUR LORD'S DAY SERVICE! Today marks the first Sunday of Advent, the celebration of the first coming of our anointed Savior promised from God's word. Because of present Covid protocols, we will not be having individual families reading and lighting the Advent wreath prior to the service; but please note the readings on the cover of this order of service. May we come and adore the Lord, today!
