What to Expect

What to Expect

What are your services like?

Our Sunday morning worship services have a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. From the moment you enter the building, you can expect to be greeted and handed a bulletin detailing some of the week’s upcoming events. People tend to visit in the foyer before the service and sit wherever there is room when the service begins at 10:30. Once the service begins, expect to hear a great mix of songs, a story, prayer, perhaps a creative surprise mixed in now and again, and the Bible read with relevant applicable thoughts gleaned from the text. We wrap things up shortly before noon. At that point, feel free to slip out quickly, or stick around and enjoy meeting a new friend or two after the service.

What’s up this weekend?

December 15/19 – The Third Sunday of Advent – Joy

Scripture: Luke 2:8-20, John 12:46, Hebrews 12:2

Sermon Title: Jesus Got Involved so We Can Have Joy

On a crisp morning my wife and I went for a run.  It was a great morning to enjoy the sun, each other’s company, and the quiet community in which we live.  That is until we were chased by a large, mean looking dog.  Our hearts beat faster with its approached barking and snarling of mean intent.  A number of cars drove past, however one stopped, willing to get involved, willing to run interference so we could jog safely past the menacing fangs.  That was years ago, but we remember with fondness the driver who allowed his day to be interrupted as he got involved in our mess.

Here at Truro Alliance we are going to look at Christmas through the lens of Jesus allowing His life – His perfect life, lived in perfect relationship with His father –  to be interrupted to get involved in our mess.  That is the story of the incarnation.  This Sunday as we read the story of the Angels and the Shepherds, we will see that Jesus Got Involved so We Can Have Joy.
