‘Come, Lord Jesus’ theme of Calvary’s Advent Festival this year


Growing up, many young children learn the words to the common table prayer, “Come, Lord Jesus, be our guest, and let these gifts to us be blessed, Amen.”

This year, that prayer is the inspiration for the Calvary Lutheran Church Advent Festival. The festival, now in its 54th year, will incorporate the theme “Come, Lord Jesus” in four areas: worship, teachings of the Old and New Testament, parables and prayer.
