Annual Christmas Program

Romans 8:22
For we know that all creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.

Psalm 143:6
I stretch out my hands to You; My soul longs for You, as a parched land. Selah.

Congregation- O Come Emmanuel
Sis Leigh-the story of the 12 days of Christmas 

Luke 2:1 At that time the Roman emperor, Augustus, decreed that a census should be taken throughout the Roman Empire.

3 All returned to their own ancestral towns to register for this census.
4 And because Joseph was a descendant of King David, he had to go to Bethlehem in Judea, David’s ancient home. He traveled there from the village of Nazareth in Galilee.

5 He took with him Mary, his fiancée, who was now obviously pregnant.

6 And while they were there, the time came for her baby to be born.

7 She gave birth to her first child, a son. She wrapped him snugly in strips of cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no lodging available for them.

Congregation- Silent Night

Luke 2:8 That night there were shepherds staying in the fields nearby, guarding their flocks of sheep.
9 Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. They were terrified,

10 but the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people.

11 The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David!

12 And you will recognize him by this sign: You will find a baby wrapped snugly in strips of cloth, lying in a manger.”

13 Suddenly, the angel was joined by a vast host of others—the armies of heaven—praising God and saying,

14 “Glory to God in highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.”

Congregation- Gloria! 

Sis Betty Sue- Away in the Manger
Congregation- Angels From the Realm of Glory

Luke 2:15 When the angels had returned to heaven, the shepherds said to each other, “Let’s go to Bethlehem! Let’s see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”

16 They hurried to the village and found Mary and Joseph. And there was the baby, lying in the manger.

Congregation- What Child is This?
Sis Jennifer- a poem

Luke 2:17 After seeing him, the shepherds told everyone what had happened and what the angel had said to them about this child.

Congregation- Joy to the world

Luke2:18 All who heard the shepherds’ story were astonished,

19 but Mary kept all these things in her heart and thought about them often.

20 The shepherds went back to their flocks, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen. It was just as the angel had told them.

Sis Joy-Hallelujah

Mark 16:15 “And He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.'”

Matthew 24:14 “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations.”

Psalms 96:3 “Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples.”
