It was the holiday weekend & to be sure many of our folks were out of town with their loved ones. Also the flu bug is raging in this area, & we had some folks out due to illness too. So although attendance was a bit down, it was still a special time together to rejoice in the birth of our Savior! And we did have some guests from out of town also! A whole family was here from Washington State. So PTL for all of these blessings/
The choir was self-directed as Pastor Seth is in SC on vacation with his family. The choir however did a mighty fine job on “Let Him In.” The three Bible college kids home for the holidays contributed wonderfully to the choir: Mary Carpenter, Johnathan Burt, & Sam Near!
The evening service was not as skimpy comparatively in attendance maybe because it was a candlelight Christmas Eve Service. But it was a blessed thing to sing Christmas carols together in candlelight & soak in the atmosphere that only Christmas affords to God’s people! I preached on “Jesus Christ, our Savior.” It was definitely a Christmas message & our people were in the mood for it. PTL for that.
So Christmas Sunday was special & delightful indeed. PTL for our faithful musicians on the keyboards & the orchestra for their wonderful support to the service that added so much. I am praising the Lord on this holiday weekend. How about you?
