We wanted to take this opportunity to welcome you to our Christmas Sunday Service here at (NAME OF CHURCH)!
This time of year is an exciting time as people are bustling from store to store, some doing their last minute shopping while others might be just simply trying to go to work, or at least arrive home safely.
We are so glad you've joined us today for worship, and whether you're a long-time member or first-time visitor, we pray the service blesses you!
Mark 1:1-8 (NKJV) 1 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. 2 As it is written in the Prophets: “Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, Who will prepare Your way before You.” 3 “The voice of one crying in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of the LORD; Make His paths straight.' ” 4 John came baptizing in the wilderness and preaching a baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.
Welcome to our Christmas Eve Service here at (NAME OF CHURCH). We are delighted that you and your family have chosen to take a few moments this evening to worship the Lord with us.
Over 2,000 years ago on a silent and holy night, the Savior of the World was born. Not in a Palace filled with pomp and circumstance, but in a lowly stable because there was no room for Mary and Joseph in the Inn.
Thank you for being with us at INSERT NAME OF CHURCH HERE as we celebrate the birth of our Savior on this holiest of nights.
Whether you are a long-time member of our congregation or a newcomer to our church family, we appreciate that you have incorporated this worship service into your own personal Christmas Eve tradition this year.
What an exciting Season this is! I don't know about you, but this tends to be my favorite time of the year as so many take time to celebrate and appreciate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
While we look around and recognize that so many have so little recognition of what this time of year is all about, we not only know why we celebrate, but we know WHO we celebrate!
