Pastor Carlo Rapanut invited me to preach which I appreciate. I have discovered that this really helps connect me with the congregation. I also enjoyed offering an Advent sermon that fit with the worship pattern Carlo had mapped out for Advent. I much prefer this than me coming to deliver a message from the conference. So thanks to Carlo and the people of Chugiak. What a dynamic and growing church!
This is a clip showing their beautiful Advent wreath while the choir sings.
I'll have lots to share next week as I am spending the week visiting all our seven churches on the Kenai Peninsula.
