IN PERSON WORSHIP SUNDAYS @ 10:30AM
It was noisy in the stable with the animals feeding, donkeys braying, the cows mooing, chickens clucking and sheep baaing. Joseph was quietly making a bed for Mary and placing fresh hay in the manger for the baby. Everything was ready for Jesus to be born. Mary had brought along strips of soft cloth to wrap around her baby to keep him warm.
Just A Little
by Judith Jolly
Just a little star
Became a brilliant light
Shining on shepherd boys
On a chilly winter’s night.
Just a little breeze
On that hillside far away
Sounds of angels singing
Called to shepherds on that day.
Just a little lamb
Grazing on the hill
Went to see the Christ child
In a manger. Oh, so still!
Just a little child
In a manger filled with hay
Showing God’s love
On that first Christmas day.
Carol of the Wise Men
The star we’ve waited for so long
To tell us of his coming,
Is here! Is here! And we must go
With trumpets and drums drumming!
The star we follow on this night
Will lead us to the cradle
Where he was born this holy night
In a poor and lowly stable.
The way is long, the way is cold,
We cannot tarry longer;
The birth of him the star has told
The way is still much longer.
A king is born this holy morn
And gifts to him we’re bringing.
The child we’ve waited for is born!
Oh hear the angels singing.
Suddenly, the sky was as light as noon. Standing before the shepherds was an angel, “Don’t be afraid,” the angel said, “I bring you good news. The Savior is born in Bethlehem today!” The sky was full of angels praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and peace among those he favors.”
Quickly the shepherds ran to Bethlehem and found Mary, Jesus and Joseph. They worshiped Jesus. Then rushed out into the streets to tell everyone what they had heard and saw that night.
