Advent at Front Street
Advent at Front Street
 
“It is good to be in the House of the Lord”
- Psalm 122:1
 
The Advent Season at Front Street UMC has always been a special time for our family.  When the children were young, we enjoyed Advent workshops, making chrismon ornaments and candy churches.  We loved the special music, live nativity, and the candlelight service.  Dave Brubeck performing his Christmas choral pageant at Front Street with the choirs and instrumentalists was an exciting and memorable event during those years.
 
Our children are now grown.  When our first grandchildren were born, Rev. Old was happy to baptize our twin granddaughters in the busy month of December.  Caroline and Chris brought the babies a thousand miles to visit and be baptized at Front Street. The church was aglow with candles, poinsettias and smiling faces.  It was a joyous time that our family will always treasure.
 
In retirement, we travel and often visit other churches.  These visits have increased our appreciation of Front Street.  We have found no other church like ours.  Entering the sanctuary in December with its decorations and magnificent music is like coming home.  There is always a beauty, dignity, and warmth at Front Street, but especially during the Advent season. 
 
Prayer
Lord God, bless our church and its congregation and ministries during this season of Advent and throughout the year.  Amen
