Advent Worship Service
December 18, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, repeating until December 18, 2019
St. James AME Church (Elgin) writes that “Advent” simply means coming as in Christ is coming, and for us now He has arrived. This is referring to His birth in history and in humanity. It meant the welcoming or the arrival of a special king and for us; it is our King of Kings. This is what the Old Testament prophecies foretold concerning Jesus’ Incarnation, the Word made flesh for our Hope and Atonement that brought us our deliverance.
Advent represents our expectation, anticipation, and preparation for who Christ is and what He has done for us. He arrived into the world as a human being, being fully God and fully man. He came to identify as one of us, as the Son of Man, as a baby born in a manger. He came for us, He came for you and He comes into our lives and into our hearts. He is coming again in great power and glory to bring His Kingdom into fruition.
End time is approximate.
The announcements and order for floral arrangements for our worship guide should be in the church office by Wednesday before 12Noon each week. Email your announcements to email@example.com.
