Happy Christmas! We invite you to worship with us this special Christmas worship, put it together so that you may join in a variety of ways. You may even want to bring in family, friends and neighbors, especially those who will not be able to attend a physical Christmas worship service.
In this short worship, we'll be singing favorite Christmas hymns, read the Christmas scripture from Luke 2:1-20, light our four Advent candles and the Christ candle, hear a short Christmas message from Rev. Bob Shaw, and the go out singing the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel's Messiah. We hope that you will join in!
If you have advent candles and would like to light them along with us, you will need get them ready, and light them as we light the ones you will see on the screen. The Hallelujah Chorus traditional asks the congregation to join in, choose a part, and sing praises to God however you please, as we do here. God bless you this Christmas, and thank you so much for joining us!
