Overflowing with a Pleasing Theme

I am truly anticipating our celebration of the incarnation of the Son this Lord's Day. The choir has prepared a sacrifice of skillful praise, and this will be a program in which we can all participate with heart and soul and voice. I urge you to come this Lord's Day with a heart ready to overflow with a pleasing theme as we address our verses to the king!

Invite one and all to come, and join us at 10:30 a.m. Here's a bit of what we have to look forward to.
