MWMC This Week – December 1, 2019

December 1, 2018

First Sunday of Advent

Christ is coming! The colour blue on our altar table signals us to “look up” (to the sky) for our redemption draws near. We long to be ready for His appearing and share in the joy He promises His people. We pray that you will sense the peace of Jesus’ presence as we worship today.
