Best family Christmas service I’ve seen, especially since we’ve been without a pastor for almost a year!
It began with the “host’s” three-year-old son singing “Happy birthday Jesus” to celebrate Jesus birthday party -so cute! Followed by a boy I’d not seen before, wheeling in a giant birthday cake (to be shared after the service) complete with candles for the little ones to come blow out. There were nativity costumes among the congregation, many of which were invited to enter into an enactment of the delightful children’s book “A Well Good Christmas”.
We discovered the labels we found on our seats (shepherd, wiseman etc.) were to enable us all to join in waves of standing for the adaption of the 12 days of Christmas. Best of all though were the new faces of families coming to join in for the first time!
