"Let every heart prepare him room, and heaven and nature sing!"

These words from the hymn Joy to the World are often sung at Christmas, but the words are a perfect match for Advent. The words call us to prepare our hearts for Jesus' coming on the Last Day.

We will begin our new church year this Sunday with this hymn as we get ready each week of Advent for Jesus' coming: Look! - Prepare! - Believe! - Rejoice!


Readings for this Sunday
Isaiah 64:1-9
1 Corinthians 1:3-9
Mark 11:1-10

PRE-FRIENDSHIP REGISTER FOR IN-PERSON WORSHIP
If you plan to come in-person for worship this Sunday, feel free to use our "pre-friendship register".  You can also use the calendar links below under "Upcoming Events".
Please do what you are comfortable with as far as attending in-person or worshiping from home. And, of course, if you are not feeling well, please join us online at 10am on Facebook or YouTube!
(You don't need an actual, printed ticket to get in, of course. This is just a digital tool that helps us see the number of people planning to come, as we are limited to 50 people or less per service. Thanks!)
Are you ready - really ready, truly ready - for Jesus? We're going to have a midweek mini-series during Advent called "Ready or Not" that will focus on Luke 11:27-52, meeting three groups who think they are ready, but really aren't. Over three Wednesdays, Jesus will help us consider what Christian readiness really means.

Wednesdays at 7pm for 30 minutes, December 2, 9 and 16. 
  • December 2: Meet the Unblessed
  • December 9: Meet the Wicked Generation
  • December 16: Meet the Dirty Insider

Our second session for learning, growing and supporting in mental health was on grieving. It was WONDERFUL, and a great chance to learn more to be able to offer more to others in their grief. Look for more sessions in the new year!

Remember in Prayer...
  • Barbara Bisceglia - Resident of Balfour and member of Living Savior - Barbara continues to heal at a new Balfour location that can meet her medical needs. 
  • Bob Hutchison - Resident of Balfour and member of Living Savior - Aubin, Bob's wife, has won her race and wears her crown of victory. Aubin passed earlier this month. Pray for Bob and the family, as they mourn her earthly absence, but rejoice in her victory in Christ!
  • Peterson Family (Brandon, Melissa, Dylan and Blake)- Brandon has been deployed with the Navy. Please pray for their family, as they are going through a lot of transitions. 
  • Pam Griffin - (Morning Westerberg's mother) - Battling cancer. Pray that the Lord might open her heart that she might see the light of God's love in Jesus.
  • Merlin Camrud - Experiencing significant pain and challenges related to his physical health. If you know Merlin, say a prayer, give him a call, and give thanks to God for preserving his life through so much adversity the last few months!
  • Susan Bondow - (Pastor's mother) - Ongoing treatment for leukemia expected to end in 2021. The treatments have been working wonderfully thus far. Still a long road ahead, but feeling beyond blessed!
Don't forget to pray for the work we are able to do together as part of the WELS (Wisconsin Ev. Lutheran Synod). Here is a suggestion:
  • Academia Cristo – Holy Spirit, you have helped us find a surprisingly successful method of outreach in Latin America through smartphones. Thank you that through social media, the sharing of religious content, and training courses we have reached so many people including those helping to establish Bible study groups and congregations. Continue to bless our work in Latin America as well as in other regions of the world where we are trying a similar model of communicating your gospel. As we plant and water the seeds of faith, we entrust them to you to make them grow. Amen.
