Blessed Christmas Day!

We were blessed with a wonderful, simple and meaningful service today.

Our artist friend, Komeil, did an amazing live painting during the service! Here’s the end result:

We also had BLC Family members present Christmas carols in sign language! Check out their practice session here:

We also had Pastor Sivin will also finish up his Advent and Christmas sermon series with, “Christ’s Presence In The Shadows.” Of course, there was the usual pop-culture reference to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story… with Sivin all decked out in what he calls his “Jedi Robes” (*cough* vestments *cough*).

You can check out Sivin’s snazzy sermon Prezi here.

Of course, no celebration is complete without the BLC Family enjoying a meal together. We loved the delicious food catered from our neighbors – Lubuk Bangku D’Cabin Cafe. It was delicious! They’re right opposite us – so feel free to check them out during the week.

Sermon Series: Advent & Christmas 2016 

With today’s celebration of Doom/Christ the King Sunday, we begin the liturgical calendar anew and enter into the season of Advent, a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the coming of Jesus.

For Christians, the season of Advent anticipates the coming of Christ from two different perspectives: to share in the ancient longing for the coming of the Messiah, and to be alert for his Second Coming.

As Christians we live in a time of now and not yet.

Living as witnesses of the resurrection, we eagerly await the second coming of Christ by living a life worthy of the Gospel message. However, we often find ourselves impatient and exhausted by the call to share the good news of Christ.

Advent, the first season of the Christian church year, is a season full of anticipation and preparation. Advent helps us align our impatience, not with each other or the stumbling blocks of God’s mission, but with the long awaited Messiah, both now and not yet. 

Join us at BLC for Advent and Christmas this year. May you and your loved ones be especially blessed this season.

All events are open events – please invite your loved ones and friends to join us this season. 

Advent 2016 at Bangsar Lutheran Church, KL
