December 19 Worship

O sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things.
—Psalm 98:1

Today is the last Sunday before Christmas, and we dedicated our worship service to the music of the season. Our choir sang an introit and an anthem, our bell choir played two carols, we had dulcimer & percussion, and we had a countdown of our five favorite Christmas carols. Below is a video of today's service in its entirety (just click read more) and beneath that is the order of worship.
