Worship service – December 19, 2021 – “Restore Us, O God: Love”

On this fourth Sunday of Advent, we look at the unexpected ways God expresses love for our world.

Our services are being held with in-person attendance at 10 a.m. Sunday morning.  Today’s service is provided below in its entirety in video format.

Our Scripture Reading is from Psalm 89:1-4, 19-26 NRSV. This Psalm harks back to the story in the book of II Samuel, when David (as a youth) was called by God for his future leadership. It includes a recollection of the promise that David’s descendants would be held in high regard, and that God’s faithfulness and steadfast love would be with him. This was considered a foreshadowing of the coming of Jesus.

Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is the one true Church whose faith we support with our prayers, our presence, our giving, our witness and our service.
Our offering is given to the mission and ministry of MHUMC.  Remember our gifts come from us, as the people of God, for the work of God, to the Glory of God in the world.

The message today from Rev. Dr. Linda Holbrook is “Restore Us, O God: Love.”
