In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus suggests that participation in the kingdom of God has some unlikely criteria: giving food to the hungry, welcoming strangers, clothing the naked, visiting those in prison. Lisa Larges will be our guest preacher. Lisa has preached in Presbyterian churches and at conferences across the country. She is a part of Lake Nokomis Presbyterian Church in Minneapolis, and serves the Presbytery as the chair of the Disabilities Concerns Ministry. For more than two decades, Lisa has worked for the full inclusion of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender members in the life of the Presbyterian church, most recently as the Director of That All May Freely Serve, from 2007 – 2012. She now works as the Outreach Coordinator for State Services for the Blind, based in St. Paul.
The choir will sing a piece by Abbie Betinis that Central commissioned several years ago, featuring our section leaders. Assistant Organist Joe Trucano will play in worship.

The Season of Advent begins at Central. In this season of waiting for the light of God to brighten our world, we will light Advent Candles, share communion, and listen for words of promise and hope. Rev. Colby will preach. We begin advent musically with Isaiah’s proclamation from The Messiah, “Every Valley Shall Be Exalted” sung by our tenor section leader, Bill Haugen, and accompanied by Steve Swanson.
