This Week’s Worship Service (December 20th, 2020)
This Sunday, Pastor Lamar will be preaching about “A Christmas Tree Like No Other” (Matthew 1:1-17). This Sunday’s songs will be Joy To The World by Paul Baloche, George Frideric Handel, and Isaac Watts, What A Beautiful Name by Ben Fielding and Brooke Ligertwood, and O Come All Ye Faithful by C. Frederick Oakeley and John Francis Wade.
On behalf of the Pastors and Elders,
Church Family, in recent months, we’ve been challenged to wear face coverings while in the building. In Philippians 2:3-4 – Paul is encouraging the church in Philippi to have the same heart and attitude of humility as Jesus. Wearing face coverings is not enjoyable for anyone, but there is a principle stated within these scriptures of humility. In verse 3 Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; 4 do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. This is especially true as we worship the Lord together each week, including singing. Let us wear our face covering in a spirit of humility. We encourage everyone to help promote an atmosphere of respect, trust and love, by wearing face coverings at all times, while inside of the Church. Your help and support is much appreciated.

Celebrate Christmas with us at our Christmas Eve service on Thursday, December 24th. We’ll have two services, at 3pm and 5pm to accommodate for physical distancing.
