3rd CANDLE – (pink) THE SHEPHERD CANDLE or THE CANDLE OF JOY – The angels sang a message of JOY! “…and she gave birth to her firstborn,
a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.
An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.
But the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you:
You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.’ Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host
appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on
whom his favor rests.’ When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another,
‘Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”
Merry Christmas! Thanks for visiting our online church family. We are in the midst of preparing for a very special day...
the birth of a Savior, Emmanuel, "God with Us"! In our church family, we celebrate Christmas in the season of Advent.
The word "advent" is dervied from the Latin word, adventus, which means "coming". We mark the passing of time and the
"coming" of Jesus to earth in the month of December by lighting one candle each Sunday representing hope, peace, joy and love.
Jesus gives us these gifts, and we in turn, give these gifts to one another. This Christmas season, may you experience the hope,
peace, joy and love that comes from Jesus. Peace and Joy to you and yours...
