Preparing for Worship: December 22, 2013

February 6, 2019

It is a joy to be in a worship service around Christmas time. All of the sights, sounds, and smells of the season converge when God's people gather and sing with gusto, "Joy to the world! The Lord is come!", or, "Come and worship! Come and worship! Worship Christ the newborn king!" There are two opportunities in the coming days to gather for worship and sing about the Savior's birth. This Sunday evening at 6:30pm the Children and Adult Choirs will be leading the congregation in Christmas songs. Then, on Christmas Eve at 5:00pm we will hold a candlelight service in which we will focus the person and work of Christ in typical "carols and lessons" format. Both services should be encouraging to you and your family! The sermon text for Sunday is Psalm 32, which you can read here. Songs that the choir will lead in the evening service can be found in a playlist here: 1. Joy to the World (Shout for Joy) 2. Hark the Herald Angels Sing (King of Heaven) 3. Prepare Him Room 4. Christmas Offering 5. This is Love (Come Thou Long Expected Jesus) 6. O Come All Ye Faithful (We Adore You).
