Please join us at Cheney Congregational Church Sunday, Dec. 1, at 10 a.m. for the beginning of the Advent season. Pastor Matt Goodale will be giving a sermon titled “The Language of Advent.”
Words such as love, joy, peace, and hope appear regularly around Christmas time each year. Churches use these words often, and marketing agencies use these words to sell the newest product. The more we hear these words, the more they lose their meaning. Join us as we take a close look at how these words appear in the Scripture in order to find fresh meaning in them and to rediscover how they point us to the true reason we celebrate Christmas.
Children’s Church is available during services for those who would like to attend. We also have a children’s area in the sanctuary. Choir practice is Sunday at 9 a.m.

For your contemplation: “Life has taught me three things: The first is that I cannot escape my own death or the deaths of the people I love. The second is that no human being can be reduced to what we see, or think we see. Any person is infinitely larger, and deeper, than our narrow judgments can discern. And third: He or she can never be considered to have uttered the final word on anything, is always developing, always has the power of self-fulfillment, and a capacity for self-transformation through all the crises and trials of life.” Marie de Hennezel
