Welcome to Nambucca Baptist Church for our worship service today, Sunday 28th November 2021. Today is Advent sunday and the theme for the service for the first Sunday in Advent is hope. We used this opportunity to belatedly observe the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. There are extra segments in the service today for this reason.
As Christians we have something that the world cannot enjoy. We have our hope in the promises of God and the return of Jesus. We had Advent candles in the church today and we lit the candle for week 1, the Hope candle. Hope is amazing. Like our candle flame, hope creeps in through the darkness, often as just a flicker of light. That’s the thing about light, though. You only need a little of it to dispel the darkness, and as it burns longer it grows hotter and brighter.
Wherever or whenever you get to watch this service, please think of yourself as a part of our church family, and join with us, as we worship our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
This is where we would normally take up a collection but as you can see we can’t pass an offering bag around online. We have, however, provided a secure online giving facility for you. You can either use the Tithe.ly app on your smartphone or just click on the green button on the screen. We have been blessed by the way so many of you have managed to continue to give in various ways so that we can continue with the work of the Lord here in our church and beyond our walls.
