The first Sunday in Advent is November 28th. The Advent Worship Series for 2021 is “WAIT UPON THE LORD”. The season of Advent is characterized by waiting—waiting upon the Lord for his presence to be revealed to us on Christmas. In this worship series for Advent, we look back in Scripture at those who waited upon the Lord for his promises to come to pass through the Christ Child. We also look forward, contemplating how we should wait upon the Lord in this present moment of our lives, as God continues to make himself known to us.
Week 1 • Wait Upon the Lord with Faith (Galatians 3:8):
Abraham and Sarah waited with faith for the birth of their son, 
Isaac, and we wait with faith for the birth of God’s Son,
Jesus, trusting that he will come at Christmas to save all people.
Week 2 • Wait Upon the Lord with Hope (Psalm 130:5):
The prophet Isaiah declared the coming of the Lord,
which gave the people of Israel hope for the future.
We wait with hope for the future because we know what the future holds—a Savior.
Week 3 • Wait Upon the Lord with Rejoicing (Isaiah 25:9):
Elizabeth rejoiced as she waited for the coming of her son,
John the Baptist. And Mary rejoiced as she waited for the birth of her son, Jesus.
In the same manner we rejoice as we wait for the coming of the Son of God.
Week 4 • Wait Upon the Lord with Gratitude (Psalm 9:1):
Zechariah’s waiting days for John the Baptist’s birth were filled with great gratitude for the
Lord’s promise about to be fulfilled. In these remaining waiting days before our Savior’s birth,
we are ever more grateful for the arrival of the Promised One.
