RECAP: Advent, The Arrival is our series and theme. We used candles on a stand with the traditional 3 purple, one pink and one white candles. The Advent theme for this week was “Prophet” where we had kids read scripture out of Isaiah about the coming Messiah–Jesus. The element of the Advent candles, new Christmas stage design and kids choir made this morning a great start of the holiday season. Child dedications also made our service full along with tables with our Give Love Away: Christmas Edition set up all around our worship center. We are asking each member to consider one of our current serve group projects from The Brook (homeless ministry) to helping unwed mothers or even support for orphans.
SET LIST: Our set was short this week with all that was in it, but seemed to work pretty well. Here are the songs…
- Salvation is Here – Joel Houston
- Our God Saves – Paul Baloche
- Blessed Be Your Name – Matt Redman
How did you or your church open the Advent season? You use candles, Christmas carols or what?
