Tomorrow is our Christmas For Christ service at church. This is the one Sunday every year where we bring gifts to Jesus. Each family brings a wrapped offering, and places it in the manger. The offering is used to help start new churches, and sometimes part of the offering is used to help our own church. This year, we will be giving part of the offering for other churches and keeping part to help us with our building fund. We have been renting a building for seventeen years, and it is our dream to have our own building someday in the near future.
Also, on this particular Sunday, we have our Christmas program. This includes special songs by the choir, kids' choir, and soloists. We also have a narration or play, depending on the year.
This year, I have nine songs planned. One of them is part of a puppet show. Another is done is sign language. The choir is singing four songs, and the kids' choir is singing two. In addition to these, I am singing two solos. I can feel the pressure building!
I know that God will bless our efforts, I just hope all goes smoothly.
But no matter how it goes, our purpose is to celebrate the birth of Jesus, and to worship Him.
I will give you all an update after things calm down.
Say a prayer for me, please!
