Candlelight service went great...

We packed the house and God brought His gifts. We had guest musicians, Lee and Barb who are blue grass singers help us out during a time of need.

One unique thing we did was bring light throughout the service. We started service with no candles lit and then with the processional we lit the Christ candle. After the sermon and offering, we read the Birth narrative from Luke in sections and we lit one candle at a time on the candleabra. This represented Christ coming into our world and fully revealing himself in the manger. It was a great build-up and symbolism for the story.

I am prayerfully looking forward to tomorrow. May God bless His Word being proclaimed tomorrow!

Merry Christmas again!
