We have a number of great things happening this Sunday….
Mixed Blessings returns with a special package of Christmas music I call, “Sounds of Joy“ in our 9 AM service. The children and youth are putting on their special Christmas production at 7 PM that night. and Pastor Christopher will continue our advent series, The Music of Christmas.
Mixed Blessings, pictured at right are: Bill Fricke, (Lexington) bass and guitar; Mike Gonder (Lexington) mandolin, guitar, bass, banjo, vocals; Tony Hoeppner (Lexington) guitar, dobro, vocals; and Suzanne Hoeppner (Lexington), vocals. This Sunday’s Sounds of Joy will also feature a special oboe accompaniment to What Child Is This? by Ashley Zweifel. They will be playing many traditional favorites as well as some unique arrangements and Christmas songs written by Tony.
Pastor Christopher’s message will be, Mary Did You Know?, utilizing the haunting thoughts expressed in this recent Christmas classic. He will also share one of the “hidden” or lost verses of What Child Is This? that packs a special punch. In addition, the service will open with three generations of the Emison family doing the Advent Reading and lighting the Advent candle this Sunday.
In the evening, our Sunday school children will present the meaning of Christmas through their production of The Christmas Tree Narrative. Also, the youth group has put together a special video of the Christmas story, combining drama and music.
Come join us for some great Christmas blessings this Sunday morning and evening!
