Children’s Story...............................................................................Pastor Elliot Smith Scripture Lesson:

.......................................................Kathleen Cabansag

For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.

Hark! How the bells, sweet silver bells, all seem to say, “Throw cares away.” Christmas is here, bringing good cheer to young and old, meek and the bold. Ding, dong, ding, dong, that is their song. With joyful ring, all caroling. One seems to hear words of good cheer from everywhere, filling the air. Oh, how they pound, raising the sound, o’er hill and dale, telling their tale. Gaily they ring, while people sing, song of good cheer, Christmas is here! Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas! On, on they send, on without end, their joyful tone to every home.
