The red bows stretch forward to touch the poinsettias’ leaves. The evergreen tree spreads its fragrance through branches enveloping the pulpit. Beautiful music bathes us with Christmas themes—through the sparkle of the Westminster Brass to the glistening children’s choirs. Our voices join together in a ringing reminder of Christ’s reason for coming: “Son of God, love’s pure light, Radiant beams from thy holy face, With the dawn of redeeming grace, Jesus, Lord at thy birth.” Amidst the lighting of individual candles and the echoes of “Christ the Savior is born,” Tenth Family Christmas concludes and our celebration of Christmas begins.
Welcome to the sights and sounds of Tenth Family Christmas which we celebrate at 4:30 PM on December 24. Everyone is welcome—whether you are 2 or 92 years old. Our time together draws us closer through focusing upon the birth of our promised Savior.
The choirs of Schola Cantorum and the sounds of the Westminster Brass blend together to worship the long expected Savior whose birth we celebrate. No one will have difficulty seeing our tall Deryck Barson when he shares some thoughts from Mathew 1 entitled “The Promise Fulfilled at Last.” Nor, of course, will anyone fail to remember the lighting of the tiny candles while singing Silent Night.
Tenth Family Christmas is a wonderful opportunity for the whole family to join in celebrating the birth of our Redeemer, the Lord Jesus Christ. Please join us!
