Getting Ready for Sunday (12/11/11)

12-4 web 2

There is something special about the people of God coming together for worship (Hebrews 10:24-25). Thus, we hope Sundays at New City are a highlight of your week. In an effort to help you get more out of it, we're posting a short preview of this Sunday's gathering.

This is the second week in our Advent series called Songs for Christmas (click here for past sermons and Study Guides). This week we'll look at Simeon's Song (Luke 2:21-35)

We'll continue to mark the season with some special readings and prayers, the lighting of Advent candles, and the singing of new and old Christmas carols. Additionally, we have some very exciting news to share with you regarding our search for a Director of Worship and Equipping.
