Bill and Liz H. led musical worship with Steven and Sia T., and the congregational singing of Silent Night closes the service. The carol, composed in 1818 by Franz Xaver Gruber to lyrics by Joseph Mohr, was sung 100 years ago during the Christmas truce of World War I in German, French and English. You can hear the Queen of England tell the story in the video below the service.
Pastor Randy Solomon prayed and shared the announcements:
*Pre-service prayer will continue at 10am.
*Men's Group will resume on Saturday.
