Christ Candle – O Holy Night

Tonight we light the Christ candle of the advent wreath and by doing so we complete the circle.  Hope, Love, Joy, and Peace.  Hope is what inspires us.  We live to be love.  Joy is what brings us closer to God.  Peace is what it is all about.

Merry Christmas!

Awaken: December 21st

Last night at Awaken we had a great time.  This was our last Awaken of this year!  We will not have Awaken next week – more information on this to come in the next couple of weeks, so check back soon and often for details!  We began our worship with several songs.  We had some prayer and then jumped into the message.  Mel Strom brought the message – as she has been doing this Advent Season.  Last night we talked about Peace – and in particular the peaceable kingdom.  After the message we had a time of prayer and meditation and then closed our night with “O Holy Night”.  Thanks to all that made it out and to all a Merry Christmas.  Check back (here on the blog) on Christmas Eve for a special moment from Awaken that you will not want to miss.  We will light the Christ candle!  See you soon.

Awaken: December 14th

Worship was great last night!  We are in the third week of Advent!  We began our worship with singing several songs together.  Then we had a time for the message.  Mel Strom brought us the message – we talked about Joy.  We lit the third candle on our advent wreath – the candle that represents joy (the pink candle).  Joy is something that we receive!  So may our hearts be open this Advent season to receive Joy!  We then had a time of prayer and meditation after the message.  Then we closed with one final song and the benediction.  Come and join us next week at Awaken – it will be our last Awaken of the year – and our last Awaken Worship Gathering in the loft!  We are very excited about the upcoming changes – and hope you will be excited with us!  Come and join us for worship next Tuesday – we will start at 8:00pm.  See you soon.

Awaken: December 7th

This past Tuesday we had a great time of worship at Awaken.  We are right in the middle of this Advent – this season of Hope.  We began our worship with several songs and some prayer.  Then we got right into our time for the message.  Mel Strom brought us the message.  We lit the candle of Love on our advent wreath and then that is what we talked about.  We are Love.  We then closed our worship with a time of prayer and meditation and a final song.  Come and join us this next Tuesday night for Worship.  Those of you traveling out town – be safe and we will see you soon.  Those of you traveling into town – be safe and we hope to see you this coming Tuesday.  See you all soon.

Awaken: November 30th

Last night at Awaken we had a great time.  We are in the first week of Advent – a season of Hope!  We began our worship with several songs and even introduced a new one called Remedy, by David Crowder Band.  After some songs, we got right into the message part of our worship.  We lit the first candle on our Advent wreath – the candle of Hope.  Mel Strom brought the message and she talked to us about the meaning of Advent and how it is a season of Hope!  Afterwards we had a time of prayer and meditation and then closed our worship with a final song and our benediction.  Come and join us next week at Awaken as we continue in Advent.  See you soon!

Awaken: December 1st

Last night at Awaken was a great time.  It was cold, wet, and rainy outside, but we are still here!  We began our worship service with a few songs.  Andrew Taylor and Patrick Turkett led the songs this week.  After singing some songs together we dove into the Advent Conspiracy.  This week we learned what it means and what it looks like when we worship fully this advent season.  Trying to not get caught up in all the over-shopping and get down to worshipping.  After that we had a time of meditation and prayer.  After some prayer time we closed with one final song and called it a night.  Come and join us next week as we go deeper into the Advent Conspiracy.  Check out the video in the post below if you haven’t already.  Invite a friend to come with you and we will see you soon!

Awaken: December 21st

This week at Awaken we celebrated the Advent season!  We had pastries in all the way from the Czech Stop in West, Texas and some homemade breads and coffee of course.  We sang several Christmas songs and other songs!  We talked about the Advent wreath and what it is and what it is about and why we have it.  We lit the candles and we are ready for Christmas!  Roper sang a song by Dave Matthews called, “The Christmas Song” and we all sang What Child is This?.  After some prayer time we introduced and new song and closed with it.  The song is called Here Is Our King and it is by David Crowder Band and if you missed it I am sure you will hear it again soon!  It was great to see so many people there this week.  Come and join us next Sunday at Awaken.  Tell a friend and we will see you soon!

From all of your friends here at Awaken and Meadowbrook have a Merry Christmas!
