Advent 5: The Christmas Song of the Prophets

Pastor Linda Warren takes us through some key prophecies announcing the coming Messiah and how they were fulfilled:
Genesis 12:1-3
Genesis 49:10
Numbers 24:17
Isaiah 9:6-7
Isaiah 11:1-4
Daniel 9:24-26
Luke 1:67-72
Luke 2:1-14
Pastor Linda mentions that there are hundreds of prophecies that were fulfilled by Jesus Christ. Here are more prophecies and how Jesus fulfilled them: Bible Prophecies Fulfilled by Jesus.

Between the Scripture readings and Pastor Linda's teaching, we sing carols that celebrate the fulfillment of those prophecies. In the service we sang to modern adaptations of classic carols, but our CCLI license does not allow for sharing recordings of copyrighted material online, so because the carols were such an integral element of the service, Rich Swingle recorded carols that are in the public domain. If you'd like to sing along, click this link for the lyrics.

Pastor Jim Warren opens and closes the service.

Advent 4: The Word Made Flesh Is Hope

Pastor Joyce Swingle preaches on Matthew 1:18-25. Matthew, the despised tax collector, lived a life of shame, and he highlighted the great shame Joseph took upon himself by marrying a woman who was already bearing a child not his own. Pastor Joyce mentioned Views of the Manger, her husband Rich Swingle's play, and two stories it portrays: Joseph's choice of obedience (today's main passage) and Abram nearly walking between the cut animals when God promised to be the Covenant Keeper (Genesis 15). She also told the story of her heart failure in 2005. You can visit the blog the Swingles kept during that frightening season.

Pastor Linda Warren opens the service, and Melanie Solomon reads Luke 1:30-33. Liz J. shares that the Christmas week prayer updates will all come in one email.

Advent 3: The Humility of the Incarnation

In our third Advent message, Pastor Rachel Taylor explores the humility of the incarnation of the Son into the Baby Jesus.  Using Phil. 2: 1-11, she explains how Jesus laid aside his divine prerogatives to lay in the manger in submission to the plan of salvation for mankind.  Hearers are encouraged to submit in similar fashion to the King so that His Kingdom may come and His Will be done.

Pastor Linda Warren opens the service in prayer and does the announcements.
