Second Sunday of Advent

08/09 DEC 2018 • VOL. 49

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.”
– John 14:27

On the second week of Advent, we light the second purple candle, the Peace Candle. Peace is like a light shining in a dark place. As we look at this candle, we celebrate the peace we find in Jesus. When you put your faith in Jesus Christ, you not only receive peace with God. You also receive the peace of God to help you through the difficult circumstances of life. When you know Christ, everything can be going crazy around you, and you can still be at peace within yourself.

Visit our foyer for all weekends of Advent and soak in the spirit of the season by participating in specially planned activities for you and your family.

“God doesn’t require us to succeed,
he only requires that you try.”
“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.”
“The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.”

– Mother Teresa –

Hospitality Ministry’s Rite of Commitment • 1 Dec 2018

Left to right: Joelle, Cheyenne, Carissa and Juliana

The members of our Hospitality Ministry celebrated their Rite of Commitment last Saturday. The Ministry which has already been blessed with a good number of young adults, also saw quite a number of teens join the Ministry after their confirmation this year.

“It was a good opportunity to continue serving in the house of God after confirmation,” said Joelle. For Carissa and Juliana, they felt that it was an invitation to serve God’s people. As for Cheyenne, she said that the commissioning officially introduces the new joiners to the parishioners. Congratulations to our Hospitality Ministry!
