Lantern

For the week of December 27th

Sing to the Lord All The Earth!

Scripture: Psalm 96


This Christmas week, let us take time to lift our voices and join the angels’ song in praise of our God. No matter where we are or what is going on in our lives, the angels are singing to welcome Christ, our Lord, and they are singing to invite us to join the chorus. Come, let us adore him! See you Thursday evening at 6:00.



Song: Angels We Have Heard On High, For King and Country
