Looking Forward to December 24, 2006 -- Christmas Eve

The Candlelight Christmas Eve service will be at 7:00 pm. Get there early to get the best seats!!

The Scriptures will be:
  • The birth of a child foretold: Isaiah 9:2-7
  • The story of a baby, angels, and shepherds: Luke 2:1-20

We will sing lots of carols:

  • O Come All Ye Faithful
  • Angels from the Realm of Glory
  • Go, Tell it on the Mountain
  • O Little Town of Bethlehem
  • 'Twas in the Moon of Wintertime
  • It Came Upon a Midnight Clear
  • Joy to the World
  • Silent Night

There will not be a sermon in this service (everybody can cheer now). There will be a poem --Christmas Bells--, a story -- Pippin the Christmas Pig, and a drama set in Bethlehem on the day after Christmas mixed in throughout the service. Before singing Silent Night to close the service we will each light a small candle to show God's love shining through our world.
