11 a.m.: The Grace Chancel Choir of Grace United Methodist Church will present “The Christmas Light,” arrangement by Patrick M. Liebergen on Sunday, December 4th during the morning worship service.
The musical texts and dramatic narrative remind us of the hope, peace, joy, and love associated with the Advent season and of the coming of God’s light on Christmas day. The masterwork choruses and duet are selected from the works of J. M. Haydn, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Praetorius, and Schubert and arranged from the Christmas carol melodies of Gruber, Handel, Mendelssohn, and Wade. The dramatic narrative is drawn from biblical passages.
You won’t want to miss this special musical presentation!
5:30 p.m.: Please join us in the church yard of Grace United Methodist Church at our lighted Christmas tree for our annual Singing Around the Christmas Tree. Please bring a lawn chair if you aren’t able to stand.
Then following the singing our very talented and busy Children’s Ministry Team is planning to “showcase” the musical gifts of our children on December 4th at 6pm in the sanctuary. The children will delight us by ringing “Angels We Have Heard on High” with their bells, followed by singing “Away in a Manger,” and then concluding with a liturgical dance to “O Come All Ye Faithful!”
Please come and support our wonderful Grace kids as they help focus our attention on Christmas worship. This evening promises to honor the most cherished gift ever given through the musical gifts of children. We hope you can join us! You will certainly be blessed!

1 I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2 My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.
3 O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.
4 I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
5 They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.
6 This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.
8 O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
9 O fear the Lord, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him.
10 The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.
11 Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
12 What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good?
13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
— Psalm 34:1-14
1 The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.
2 It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the Lord, and the excellency of our God.
3 Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees.
4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.
5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
6 Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.
7 And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes.
8 And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.
9 No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:
10 And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
— Isaiah 35
