Bethany Presbyterian Church first week of advent, first reading.
Bethany lit Advent Candles for the four weeks leading up to Christmas. We had a family each Sunday share the meaning of that week's candle (Hope, Love, Faith, and Joy). We then had a wonderful well attended Christmas Eve service filled with a message entitled: Do Not Be Afraid and lots of singing of Christmas carols, scripture reading and ended with individual candle lighting as we exited the church singing Joy to the World.
This past Sunday we had a message shared by Rafael Ku followed by a fellowship meal. We did it this way because our services are conducted in both Spanish and English. (over 50 people attended)
