Yearning for Joy

Every year during Advent I try to pace myself so that I can pay attention to the people in my life and enjoy each relationship. Social gatherings are a way to recognize that people and relationships matter more than tasks and accomplishments. I have learned the hard way that I function much better if I make a list each day that includes the times and expectations for various events. If I am rushed and unprepared, I am unable to pay attention and to be fully present to the people around me. I pray that you can pace yourself for every important event in your life the next couple of weeks.

Pastor Gary Spencer is preaching at Grace this Sunday, December 12, at 9am and 11am. You do not want to miss the opportunity to hear from him this third week of Advent! His message is entitled “Yearning for Joy” and it is based upon Luke 2:4-10. Pastor Gary has a very engaging and humorous preaching style that is sure to increase your awareness of the joy of Christ this season. We look forward to Pastor Gary’s time at Grace UMC in 2022! Come out and worship Sunday, or join us online, and invite friends!

Mark your calendars for our Grace Christmas Cantata, “Sing Christmas”, scheduled for Sunday,  December 19, at 10am and 6pm. Our amazing music team has put together something special and I know their hard work will bless our community.

I look forward to seeing you Sunday!
