Christmas Eve at Chain of Lakes
We had a marvelous first Christmas Eve worship service at Chain of Lakes. Despite a blizzard taking place, 38 people attended worship. We had wonderful music, plenty of children, and the story of Jesus’ birth was told. One woman shared with me that the sermon was the best she had ever heard at Christmas Eve. The sermon can be read at: http://www.scribd.com/doc/24563208/Sermon-Christmas-Eve-2009.
One of our hopes for our December worship services was for us at Chain of Lakes to learn what it is like to worship together. We most definitely accomplished this hope. We are a much different faith community now compared to one month ago. My wife, Amy, summed it up best after our Christmas Eve service, “Chain of Lakes had an excellent first month of worship.”
We will continue to worship in January. Our focus will be getting ready for our Grand Opening service which is Sunday, January 31.
I will be taking a break from writing on this blog until Tuesday, January 5th.
Happy New Year!
