During Advent this year, Pastor Nate will be leading us through an Old Testament short story about God’s covenant faithfulness, the Book of Ruth. Set in the town of Bethlehem, the story of Ruth is the story of God redeeming and restoring His people. This book contributes to the overall covenant storyline that unifies the entire Bible and shows us how God brings restoration into the family of David in order to pave the way for an even greater redemption in the birth of Jesus.
In preparation for this season, please take a few moments to become familiar with the story and themes of Ruth by watching THIS VIDEO which visually breaks down the literary design and flow of thought of the book.
The first message in our new Advent series is titled “The Greener Grass Conspiracy” and is based on Ruth 1:1–7. Please join us in worshiping together:
- Indoors: There will be one service starting at 9:30am in the gym. We will celebrate the Lord’s Supper, but there will be no nursery and no hospitality.
- Please familiarize yourselves with the health and safety measures HERE as you prepare to return to the building. Masks are required inside (also while singing).
- Streaming: our YouTube LIVESTREAM will also begin at 9:30am for those who are unable to, or concerned about, gathering in-person.
- There will be NO printed bulletins to hand out. If you are attending the indoor service, please PRINT the bulletin at home if you are able or SAVE it to your mobile device so that you can follow along. The words will also appear on the projection slides.
Tithes & Offerings
The offering plates will not be passed around but on-site giving will be available via a plate at the back of our gathering. You may also continue using alternative giving options (e.g. mailing your checks to our PO Box or setting up Bill Pay with your bank).
If you’ve missed any of our previous livestream worship services (or any of the Wednesday Word encouragement videos), you can still watch them online on APC’s YouTube Channel.
