Services started this morning with a reading of Isaiah 9:2-7 and a prayer led by Deacon Gary Cook. Charlie Moore, interim worship leader, led the gathered in Christmas songs.

  • Angels We Have Heard on High
  • O Holy Night

After a time of welcome and fellowship, a few announcements were made and Pastor Ben said a pastoral prayer. A New Testament scripture was read, Matthew 1:18-25, and the Advent candle lit just before more songs were sung.

  • Never Cease to Praise
  • From the Squalor of a Borrowed Stable

A prayer was led by Deacon Joe Gross before the offering was gathered.  Moore sang Hallelujah for the Cross, then Pastor Ben presented today’s message.

This is the fourth message in an Advent sermon series. The full audio can be heard by clicking on the date link below, or right-click and select “Save As” to save the file to your computer.  Click on the scripture reference to follow along with the reading.
