Christmas Cantata

Christmas Cantata:
This Sunday
11:00 a.m.

From Isaiah’s prophecies of the coming Messiah to Luke’s and Matthew’s accounts of His birth, the Celebration Choir will tell the story of Emmanuel,  God With Us.

The voice of one crying in the wilderness:
“Prepare the way of the Lord;
Make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
Every valley shall be exalted
And every mountain and hill brought low;
The crooked places shall be made straight
And the rough places smooth;
The glory of the Lord shall be revealed,
And all flesh shall see it together;
For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”
–Isaiah 40:3-5

A Special Sunday Service

For each of the next several weeks our Sunday morning services will special and unique. Each week as we progress through Advent in anticipation of Christmas will be filled with special opportunities for worship. From the children’s choir to a special Christmas Day service, you will not want to miss any of these opportunities.

This Sunday our Children’s Choir will lead us in worship. This is always a special and fun time as we get to witness the enthusiasm of young children as they sing praises to God. Then in the last part of our service we will have a Deacon ordination. This is a special time in the life of the church and the life of the Deacon as we set him apart for ministry in the church. What a great combination service this will be as the children lead us in worship and then we set apart leaders to lead them into the future! Let me encourage you to read Act 6.1-7 in preparation for Sunday. This passage helps us to understand the need and the role of the Deacon in the early church and by extension our church today.
