RECAP: This weekend seemed to get started slowly since I took last week off. Once I warmed up, however, the team carried things and our service was another meaningful time together. Mel Grams, our resident wise sage of the ministry inspired us by teaching this week. It is amazing to see a currently-minded yet older man preach and seize the room with the gift God has given him to preach.
We lit the Advent candles this week, our focus on the shepherds. An elder lit it with the reference to this group of men being our “shepherds” and leaders. I thought that was a nice touch. Our church has never used the Advent lighting, but it seems to fit this year really well. Our theme, “The Arrival” will end with a special candle lighting service for Christmas Eve.
SET LIST: This week we added more Christmas carols and hymns to the mix.
- O Come Let Us Adore Him (chorus a capella)
- Come, Now is The Time to Worship – Doerksen
- Today is the Day – Brewster
- O Come All Ye Faithful – (arr. Third Day)
- Hark the Herald Angels Sing
- Angels We Have Heard On High
- We Fall Down -Tomlin
What about Christmas worship moves you the most?
