Advent and Christmas Season
This year for the Advent/Christmas season Wayside will be exploring Isaiah 9:6-7 for titles of the Christ: "For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David's throne and over his kingdom, establishling and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this."Each household is encouraged to pick up a seasonal devotional at the church and prepare and use an at-home Advent Wreath following the schedule of lighting candles we will use in corporate worship:
Advent 1 (Nov. 27) one blue candle is lit for “Hope”
Advent 2 (Dec. 4) two blue candles are lit for “Love”
Advent 3 (Dec. 11) both blue and the pink candle are lit for “Joy”
Advent 4 (Dec. 18), all four outer ring candles are lit for “Peace”
Christmas Eve (December 24) the white “Christ Candle” is lit
There will only be one 10am service on Christmas and New Year's Days.
