The Third Sunday of Advent
Worship Leader: Betty Brown
Pianist: Helen Timm
“If you seek Him, He will be found by you…”
I Chronicles 28:9
“For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.”
God’s Word describes two different kinds of seeking.
First, we are encouraged to seek God.
And we are promised that our search will bear fruit –
God will allow Himself to be found!
Second, we are told that God is a seeking God.
He is looking for us with the goal of salvation in mind.
Praise God that He searches after those who are lost!
And praise God that He allows Himself to be found!
Welcome to Huron Shores Fellowship!
We are glad that you are here.
