From the Pastor's Desk 12/10/2021
We are three-fourths of the way through Advent this Sunday - how did that happen? This is the Sunday of JOY, or "Gaudete" (Gow-day-tay) Sunday. 'Gaudete' is the Latin word for 'Rejoice!' We hear Paul remind us to "rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say rejoice!" And I get to preach a sermon on my favorite verse in the whole Bible - you'll have to tune in online or come in person to learn what it is!
Join us at 4:30 pm on Sunday for a Prayer Drive through Willmar. We will meet at the church and split up to drive around town admiring Christmas light displays and praying for the people who set them up. Then we'll return to the church for chili and carols. I wouldn't mind knowing if you plan to come, just so we know how much chili to make, and how many Prayer Route maps to print. Send a message here to let us know you're coming! Of course, you can just show up on Sunday and there will be room and chili enough for you, too!
See you in church, Church! - Pastor Jo Anne
