We are having an intergenerational worship on Sunday Dec 4 with potluck lunch to celebrate Advent 2016. All are welcome to join. Please bring 1-2 dishes of nut-free, cooked, main course (preferably in an electrical crockpot or warmer) OR desserts. We will need volunteers to help with set up, serving, and clean up. Sign up sheets are available in the lounge. Please contact Esther Penner for more
What a Glorious Night!
On Sunday Dec 4 during the intergenerational worship, children from JK to Grade 5 will be singing the song "What a Glorious Night" by Sidewalk Prophets. They will be reading a Bible passage and singing the song with us. Please feel free to go over the passage and the song with your children at home. And bring them to church on Sunday Dec 4 at 9:30am for a short rehearsal. Thank you.
The Bible passage comes from Luke 2:8-14 in KJV. Please click on picture to access the song on Youtube.
8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men (Luke 2:8-14 KJV).
