ONE-MINUTE WORD
#GodMovedIn
IN WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen tells the story of the first people to whom Jesus’ birth was announced: the shepherds. 

While we often think of these shepherds as the “noble poor,” noble was not a word their contemporaries would have used to describe them.

More likely they would have used words like degenerate and scallawag!

So what does it mean that these were the first people to learn about God’s arrival in the world? Join us Sunday at 10:30am to find out!
