The new church year begins on Advent Sunday, December 3, 2017. Advent is the time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas. The term is a version of the Latin word “coming.”
During Advent there will be the usual Sunday worship services of 8:15 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. The service and sermons will have the message within the theme of “Moving Toward the Manager.”
On Wednesday each week there will be a brief 2:00 p.m. service without communion. We will continue our Wednesday evening casual service at 6:45 p.m. service with communion.
All are welcome to attend the Advent services. Joy Lutheran Church is located at 7045 SW 83rd Place at SR 200, Ocala. For more information call (352) 854-4509 ext. 2.
