Our pastor, the Rev. Mr. Matt Adams has asked me to conduct it. Pastor Matt Smith will assist me.
Greg, our son will play the piano and lead us in singing of Christmas carols. Melvine will lead us in singing. I will be bringing a brief devotional message entitled, "The Last Desire of Jesus before His sufferings and death on the Cross."
The Scripture is recorded in Luke 22:15-20:
15 And He said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:
16 For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the Kingdom of God.
17 And He took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves:
18 For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the Kingdom of God shall come.
19 And He took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is My Body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.
20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in My blood, which is shed for you.
We will be lighting the Advent candles on our Advent Wreath.
