Advent Series

Come, Lord Jesus

The book of Revelation ends with a promise and prayer. Jesus promises that He will come again soon. And John responds with a prayer in hopeful anticipation, “Come, Lord Jesus!” The season of Advent is about both. The word “advent” means “coming.” Advent invites us to trust in the promise of the future coming of Jesus Christ by looking back at His first coming in the manger. But Advent also invites us to pray that He would come to us even now while we wait. This Sunday, we will take a brief pause in our study of Revelation and begin a new sermon series that will take us through the season of Advent until Epiphany. Each week will see how the promises of God are fulfilled in the coming of Jesus Christ.

Invite friends and family to worship in-person with us on Sunday at 8:00 (Chapel), 9:30 or 11:00 a.m. or online at pcpc.org/live/, the PCPC App with an iOS or Android device, Facebook, or YouTube.

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen His glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Behold, I am coming soon, bringing My recompense with Me, to repay each one for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.
