Prayer and Praise
The Lord’s Prayer:
Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth,
As it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory,
Scripture Mark 1:1-8

Join us each week!
He started his journey as an unknown carpenter, but Joseph became the earthly father of Jesus. For his part in the nativity story, he faced a situation much like our own–encountering life circumstances he didn’t choose or understand. In Faithful, Hamilton encourages readers to follow Joseph’s example during this Advent and Christmas season, and exchange doubt for courage as we learn to accept and glorify

AUMC CHRISTMAS POST OFFICE
The Christmas mailbox will be on the table outside the Wesley Room where you can “mail” your Christmas cards to church members. To make sorting easier, put the receiver’s name and SS Class as the intended address. Put the sender’s name as the return address. If the cards are not picked up, they will be returned to the sender. The cards will NOT be mailed through the postal system. Bring cards on Dec. 3, Dec. 10 and Dec. 17.
The 9am Worship Service needs an acolyte or multiple individuals willing to light the candles and then carry the light out at the end of the service. Contact the church office if you are willing to serve in this very important role.
