What a blessing to celebrate our Savior's birth and worship Him on Christmas Sunday! Some of the 3rd-6th grade children provided a short program portraying the true meaning of Christmas. The program along with the musical specials helped to prepare hearts for the preaching of the Word through a message brought by Pastor Damron. "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace."
