THIS WEEK IN WORSHIP
The Fourth Sunday of Advent
December 21, 2014
Questions that have been posed through the centuries will be asked throughout worship this coming Sunday, Dec. 21:
What child is this we worship now?
What child is this that prophets tell?
What child is this that Mary guards?
What child is this that kings attend?
What child is this the world awaits?
The eternal story that proclaims the good news and provides answers to these questions will be told through music, drama, and the spoken word by children, youth, and adults of College Mennonite Church as the annual Christmas pageant is presented during worship this coming Sunday. From the prophecy that foretells the coming of Jesus, through the story of his birth to the visit of the Magi, we will experience once again the fulfillment of God’s promise to send the Savior. All are welcome to join in this joyful sharing of the good news of Christ’s coming to earth.
