CBC friends and family,
Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating the Advent Season and yes, it is upon us again. Advent is a very important season in the life of the Christian Church. In Latin Advent means “coming.” Beginning on November 27, 2022, we will focus on the preparation for the celebration of the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ on December 25th. We also celebrate with steadfast hope His second coming, which is one of the tenants of our faith. During this season let us be intentional about spreading Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love. Please join us for our Advent Services, Sundays at 10:30 am. When you join us, take notice of the Violet/Purple Paraments that are displayed during Advent. The color violet/purple is a liturgical color that signifies a time of prayer, penance, and sacrifice. I look forward to seeing you.
2 The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned. -Isaiah 9:2 NIV
