Church Service on Sunday, December 15, 2019

Welcome to the website of the Church of the Holy Spirit, an international group of believers and seekers from many different backgrounds, sharing together the Good News of the Lord Jesus Christ.

When John, who was in prison, heard about the deeds of the Messiah,
he sent his disciples to ask him,
“Are you the one who is to come, or should we expect someone else?”
Jesus replied, “Go back and report to John what you hear and see:
The blind receive sight,
the lame walk,
those who have leprosy are cleansed,
the deaf hear,
the dead are raised,
and the good news is proclaimed to the poor. 
Blessed is anyone who does not stumble on account of me.”
Matthew 11:2-6

The lectionary readings for this third Sunday of Advent are:

First Reading- Isaiah 35: 1-10
Second Reading- James 5:7-10
Gospel Reading- Matthew 11:2-11

The collect for this Sunday is:

God of power and mercy, 
you call us once again to celebrate the coming of your Son. 
Remove those things which hinder love of you, 
that when he comes he may find us waiting 
in awe and wonder for him; 
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, 
one God, now and for ever.
