How wonderful it is to feel restored by a drink of fresh water. How would it feel to have a thirsty soul re-stored with the gifts of faith? This Sunday at 10AM, our Advent celebration in our new Christian year is preparing us to open the gifts of faith, using key tools of faith-building, with reminders in our free travel kits. This week, Pastor John's message will look at why we need to re-store our faith, and what we need to go "shopping" for to get it. There will be joyful music, heartfelt prayers, and warm fellowship afterwards, offering us the hope that comes only from faith. See you then!
This Sunday at 10AM our Advent worship invites us to experience God's possibilities as Pastor John Blossom's sermon series offers us the next faith tool we need "Open the Gifts of Faith" - Christian refreshment! God offers us more than just a bottle or water or a hot bath to refresh our lives through faith: God wants us to experience faith in a God who became flesh for us on Christmas; God wants of to refresh our flesh, our hearts, our souls, and God's world, through faith in Jesus!
Our beautiful church is decorated with warm and inspiring reminders of the coming of Jesus at Christmas, our fellowship will invite you into the heart of God's church, and our worship is joyful, and affirming of all people seeking God. Every worshiper will receive a special travel kit, with reminders to help them to open their gifts of faith in this new Christian year - and to use throughout the year practically! See you on Sunday, at 10AM- come to be refreshed!
Until Jesus Comes! Dec 2nd Worship and Christmas in the Village at South Meriden Trinity UMC [PHOTOS]
This Advent, the beginning of our new Christian year, we have an opportunity to reflect, to refresh, to restore, and to rejoice, through the gifts that faith offers us, as we prepare for the coming of the Christ child, Jesus, into our hears and God's world on Christmas. Then, in Christmastide, we celebrate the beginning of our journey in faith that our gifts prepare us for, as we travel, with the "wise men" visiting Jesus, closer to accepting Jesus as the One who God points us towards in faith.
Each Sunday during Advent, worshipers will receive a faith gift in a travel bag, which you will be able to use in your own travels in the months and years ahead,.for your travel items, and as a reminder of where your faith is bringing you this year. The gifts will include prayerful reminders of how we can continue to open our gifts of faith throughout the new year, as we journey in Christian discipleship together.
We hope that you will find this to be a heart-warming and exciting time to be in our church, and to open up to God's possibilities in faith. Please remember your invitation cards, and invite others to join you, and us, on your journey of faith!

Come at 10AM on Sunday for joyful worship, a special moment of prayer, and warm fellowship, at the beginning of a season of hope!
