On December 3, Michael Danner, Illinois Mennonite Conference Minister, is our guest speaker for the first Sunday of Advent.
During the season of Advent leading up to Christmas, our theme is “Yes, Let It Be!” In Luke 1:38, Mary’s prayer is “Here am I, the servant of the Lord; let it be with me according to your word.” Mary had just heard an amazing plan—and from an angel, no less! The plan was for her to carry, and give birth to, the Son of God! Mary responded, “Let it be” which is her expressing a strong desire to be part of God’s plan.
If you haven’t attended NSMC before, expect to meet people who welcome you and care about you. We are a community following Jesus and we help each other in this journey. We welcome you to experience God’s love and be a light in the world with us.
Dress comfortably for our services because we are more concerned with you and not what you wear. Most people dress casually. The temperature inside the Civic Center can vary quite a bit, so we suggest wearing layers for comfort.
