Readings and Liturgy for the 1st Sunday of Advent

Old Testament Reading Isaiah 64:1–9
Epistle Reading: 1 Corinthians 1:3–9
Gospel Reading: Mark 1:24-37
Sermon: “He is Coming”



In these days of the pandemic we are worshiping mostly on-line using the Zoom Audio-visual Conferencing program. Please email us at info@fpcnewkirk.org to be added to our Zoom invitation list

If you choose to come to worship in the Sanctuary during this pandemic, you will be asked to wear a mask and physically distance by household in the sanctuary to limit the risk to each other and your pastor. Obviously we will not be shaking hands or hugging (despite how much we long to do so). We have Sanitizer and masks available at both entrances. 

  • If you are not feeling well, or may have been recently exposed to the Corona virus please stay home and join us on Zoom.
  • If you are vulnerable to severe effects of the virus (that’s most of us) or are uncomfortable or simply unable to join us physically, join us on Zoom as well. You will still be a major part of the service. I have endeavored to make the technology serve us so that those is the sanctuary will be able to both see and hear those at home and you at home will also be able to see and hear those in the Sanctuary. You continue to be a vital part of the congregation both gathered and scattered. 

Grace and Peace,

Pastor Mark
