Yesterday was the 2nd Sunday of Advent – the Bethlehem candle on the traditional Advent Calendar…
We opened yesterday with All Because of Jesus.
After our call to worship we sang Sing to the King, O Come All Ye Faithful, O Little Town of Bethlehem, and You Alone Can Rescue.
I was struck by the last verse in O Little Town – “cast out our sin and enter in, be born in us today” and how well it fits with the opening line for You Alone Can Rescue – “who, Oh Lord, can save themselves, their own souls could heal…”
For our offering song, Lauren Roberts sang You’re Here.
We also sang two songs during our communion time – Kristen Williams sang Breath of Heaven, and Jenny Pruitt sang Labor of Love.
Look for those three tunes to be showing up on an Oak Mountain Christmas songs CD next fall…
Be sure and join us this week as our worship ministry leads us through “All Things New” – our Christmas worship service. 9 and 10:45.
