“It is good to be children sometimes, and never better than at Christmas, when its mighty Founder was a child himself.”
-Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol
We had a wonderful time celebrating Jesus’ birth at our two Christmas worship services this past Saturday. Wow, we had large crowds. I think we had the most people we’ve ever had before. I’m so glad our families were able to join us!
It is wonderful to take a short time to focus on Jesus! I love singing with the kids each day as we prepare to share the story through word and song. I hope they sang out loud enough for you to hear their sweet voices.
We have the songs on our website but I thought we would add them here too so you can always have access to them. I’m glad to know that the kids want to continue singing them well past the Christmas holiday.
Born in a Stable
Hush There’s a Baby
On the Day that Jesus was Born
Somethings Going to Happen in the Stable
We’ve got No Room
I thank all the staff and families that helped us share the message. It is my hope to share a message that is meaningful for both the kids and the adults. We hope everyone makes Christmas preparations and celebrations for focusing on Jesus – the true reason for Christmas!
We love the large crowds – and hope you were able to find a good spot to see your child. I laughed when I saw this photo of a mom capturing the moment on her phone. I hope you all appreciate how easy it is to get these moments with your kids. Back in our day we had to lug in a large DSL camera if we wanted to have any quality pictures. Just saying. 🙂
And, of course, we especially love the sound of those sweet voices. Thank you for sharing your children with us. Hearing them sing is truly a Christmas gift we enjoy each year!
We are so thankful for you – our generous families. Mission Southside is such an awesome ministry that serves youth right here in our area. We are very glad to be able to share such a wealth of items to stock their BackSnack program. THANK YOU
