Our worship service on December 8 included the annual Children’s Christmas Program.
The toddler and preschool Discovery classes dressed as angels and sang to baby Jesus. The older children presented “Lessons and Carols”; sharing readings from the Books of Genesis, Isaiah, Micah, Luke, Matthew and Psalms. The adult choir joined the children for special music, “He is Born”, and “Baby In A Manger, Gloria!”. The congregation was also included in singing selected versus from eleven familiar Christmas hymns.
