German Christmas Vespers Service –
Sunday, December 5 at 3:00 pm
Individuals and families of German and Eastern European heritage and others who are interested in experiencing a unique Christmas service in the German tradition are welcome to join in worship in the Annual German Christmas Vespers at Trinity on Sunday, December 5 at 3:00 p.m.
The Vesper-Gottesdienst will include familiar German carols, Scripture readings. The preacher is Rev. Alex Walbrodt, Pastor of Atonement Lutheran Church, Jackson Heights, Queens, New York.
The Rev. Dr. Peter Boehringer of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church invites all to attend.
Forerunners and messengers advance the advent of our God. While John the baptizer’s voice in the wilderness may be the principal focus of the day, Malachi’s prophecy could as easily herald the coming Christ as forerunner of the Lord of hosts. Finally all the baptized are called to participate in the sharing of the gospel. In so doing we prepare the way for the coming of Jesus and assist all people in capturing a vision of the “salvation of God.”
Prayer of the Day
Stir up our hearts, Lord God, to prepare the way of your only Son. By his coming give to all the people of the world knowledge of your salvation; through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
First Reading: Malachi 3:1-4
God announces a covenant with Israel. A messenger like Malachi (his name means “my messenger”) will prepare the way for the coming of the Lord by purifying and refining God’s people, as silver and gold are refined.
Psalm Luke 1:68-79
In the tender compassion of our God the dawn from on high shall break upon us.
Gospel: Luke 3:1-6
John the Baptist is a herald of Jesus, whose way is prepared by “repentance for the forgiveness of sins.” As we hear the careful record of human leaders, we sense the spectrum of political and religious authority that will be challenged by this coming Lord.

We have always maintained that church is so much more than a place you "go to." Rather, it's a people who experience, model, and share the good news of God's love, and we believe that the best is before us.
Continue to seek God first, welcome Him into your heart. Be mindful of the health of your family,
yourself and your fellow neighbor.
