Today is Christmas Eve and we want to welcome you to today’s Sunday Online at Encounter Vineyard. If you are here for the first time, thank you for joining us. We are thrilled that you want to be part of this celebration. If you are a part of our regular extended family then welcome back!
Today we continue in our celebration of Advent with our series ‘Behold’. Advent is a very special season in the life of the church, where in the midst of all the busyness of our last-minute preparations for Christmas we pause to remind ourselves of what lies at the heart of this season – our celebration of the arrival of the Messiah, both 2000 years ago and as we await His return!
This Christmas Eve, not only will we be lighting the fourth candle on our Advent Wreath but Mark will be bringing his final message in the Behold series called ‘Letting Go’ where he will be focusing on the hope that we all crave, A hope that came in swaddling cloths, born in an unassuming stable and in a posture of surrender … Gods rescue plan for humanity.
We hope that you enjoy worshipping and celebrating with us today and, we pray that today would be a blessing for us all.
