Welcome to this weekend’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!
This Sunday we continue in our celebration of Advent. This is very special season in the life of the church, where in the midst of all the busyness of our preparation for Christmas we are able to live in anticipation 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!
During this season we will be in a series called ‘Behold’ and today Mark will continue on the journey of Advent with a message called ‘Unlocking the Hope of Christmas.’ This is a message which will explore how we can endure waiting and how we grow in patience. It will help us look at what it means to intentionally ‘Behold’ and challenge us to change the way we see what is around us as we seek to ‘Unlock Hope this coming Christmas.’
We hope that you enjoy worshipping and celebrating with us today and, we pray that today would be a blessing for us all.
