Yesterday (actually Sunday because I’m writing this on Tuesday) was the first Sunday of Advent. At OMPC we love to sing the traditional Christmas carols – but we also include songs that we normally sing during the year, which in the context of Advent, take on a whole new meaning. Yesterday we sang a lot about “waiting,” which of course reminds us that not only are we celebrating the birth of Christ, but we also wait and long for His return, coming in the clouds.
We opened with Heaven and Earth (but just as a side note – i don’t sing the bridge during advent)
After the call to worship we sang Everlasting God, Come Thou Long Expected Jesus, O Come Emmanuel, and Waiting Here For You.
Our offering song was Love Came Down.
Join us this coming Sunday for our 15th annual special Christmas worship service – The Heavens Declare at 8:15 and 10:45.
