The Third Advent Candle is Joy.  This joy does not depend on circumstances, for it flows from the font of the joy of our salvation.  Pastor Cheryl will be preaching at the 10:00 A.M. service, with her message entitled, Joy Mends.  Pastor Hart Tan will be preaching at the 5:00 P.M. Service. The poem below along with scripture is guiding our Advent Season this year. 

Now the Work of Christmas by Howard Thurman

When the song of the angels is stilled,
when the star in the sky is gone,
when the kings and princes are home,
when the shepherds are back with their flocks,
the work of Christmas begins:
    to find the lost,
    to heal the broken,
   to feed the hungry,
   to release the prisoner,
   to rebuild the nations,
   to bring peace among the people,
   to make music in the heart.
