The Wilcoxes enjoyed a wonderful Christmas break. For those so inclined, you can catch up on our personal activities here. I took most of last week off, since the church calendar and building were mostly empty.
Now that I'm back at the office, I thought I'd give a quick recap of our Christmas Eve Service. What went well and what didn't, from the technical standpoint?
First, here is a rundown of the schedule...
Hope Has Come
O Come, All Ye Faithful
Angels We Have Heard on High
Hark, the Herald Angels Sing
"Heaven to Earth" Drama
Father & Daughter Shooting Star Sketch
Here I Am to Worship Solo
Here I am to Worship
Sermon from Matthew 1
"Who Were You" Interwoven Testimonies
Application of Truth
Joy to the World
Hope Has Come was the theme of our evening, so the beginning song was appropriate. At first, I didn't think the song would fit well as the start of a Christmas Service. It didn't sound Christmas-y enough or something. However, it turned out to serve the purpose and the meaning very well thanks to the musicians and choir director.
Congregational Worship was a highlight, as usual. Covenant Life loves to sing and it's great to be able to invite our guests to sing along with songs they already know!
Well, times up for today. I need to run home, but I'll pick up where I left off tomorrow.
