Luke 1:26-38 NLT
Welcome to Nambucca Baptist Church for our worship and communion service this Sunday 5th December 2021. Today was cool and wet on the outside but warm and friendly inside.
Today we observe the second week of Advent with the Bethlehem candle, the candle that recognises the faith of Mary as she is confronted by the angel Gabriel with the news that she has been chosen to carry the holy Child of God, the Messiah. Her faith in the word of God that she will deliver the baby safely is tested by the lengthy and harrowing journey from Nazareth in Galilee, to Bethlehem, South of Jerusalem a journey of around 130 Km through rough and difficult terrain. When we choose to partner with God in faith like Mary it brings our life back into focus. It brings us back into that place where we can walk with the peace and joy that God intends for us.
Please join with our church family today as we worship and celebrate Holy Communion and may the Lord bless you just as He blessed us today.
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.
