Classic Christmas

Sunday :: Worship / Fellowship

Sunday, December 1st

As we step into Advent, we will be taking a look at a Classic Christmas. This morning we are considering the words to the classic carol “Come Thou Long Expected Jesus.” As we look at this carol, our prayer is that we have a fresh and renewed hope for this season of expectation of the long-awaited Christ child, the hope of the world.

Key Verse

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6
