Memory verse December
6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9 v 6
11.30am Colin will preach on Luke 1:1–25 on Sunday morning which tells us that the angel Gabriel announced to Zechariah that his wife, Elizabeth, would give birth to John who would prepare the people for the coming of the Lord.
7pm Colin will preach on Luke 1:26–38 which tells us that Gabriel announced to Mary that she would give conceive a son by the Holy Spirit and that her son will be great and will be called the Son of God and will rule over an everlasting kingdom. We gather in the presence of God to hear his word and to give thanks to him in prayer and praise. Everyone is welcome to join us.
