Preparing for Worship – Dec 20

from Mark Hoffman

It’s almost Christmas, and we have some special things happening at Meadows!     On Sunday morning we will have our Meadows Family Christmas service. If you haven’t been to one of these services in the past, come ready for a relaxed Christmas celebration together as a church family.  We will enjoy breakfast goodies in the atrium to the music of some of our student musicians, light the Advent candle, sing traditional Christmas songs, have a gift exchange, hear a brief devotional message from Andrew, and take a “family picture.” It’s always a great time of worship and fellowship, and the fun starts at 9:30am.


On Monday evening is our Christmas Eve candlelight service. Pastor Andrew will use John 1 as our guide as we focus on Jesus Christ, our Savior who WAS, IS and IS TO COME. We will gather for this special time of worship to reflect on Scripture (John 1:1-5, Matt 1:18-23, Luke 2:1-20, John 1:9-14) and to respond in prayer and in song (Unchanging, O Come All Ye FaithfulWhat Child Is This, O Little Town of Bethlehem, Go Tell It) as we center our hearts and minds on Jesus Christ. This hour-long service of worship begins at 8:00pm.


I hope you will plan to come and celebrate the birth of the Savior with us this week! Mark
