Christmas at Bridges of Hope

Special Service and Caroling

By Alex Nagy |  December 21, 2009

Greetings everyone! Sunday was a super-special day for Bridges of Hope Fellowship. Before our service even began, we received a special treat. We watched a short clip about the origins of the popular carol, "Silent Night". That really set the move for the rest of our service, which consisted of members of the congregation stepping up and reading passages from the Bible related to the birth of Christ and the Great Commission, Pastor giving us God's word in between the readings, a special communion, and as an extra special unexpected treat one of our younger members stepped up and accepted Jesus Christ into their life! I cannot imagine a Christmas service getting any more special then the one we had on the 20th, but it does get better! In between each reading we were led in traditional carols by our worship leader. Some of the ones we sung were Joy to the World and Silent Night.
The day wasn't over yet, though! As about 15 members of the church went caroling, sending the light of God to a neighborhood in need of a touch from God. We visited about 22 homes as we sung Joy to the World, Silent Night, and We Wish You a Merry Christmas while pastor went up and introduced himself and gave each household a small gift. Despite the cold, I don't think there was a cold body in the bunch.

I can only praise God for such a blessed Sunday! Here's hoping that you and your family have a very blessed and merry Christmas and a happy new year!
