“Because Your love is better than life, my lips will glorify You. I will praise You as long as I live, and in Your name I will lift up my hands.”
Psalm 63: 3-4
A note from Paul Williams, Minister of Music
“And she gave birth to her firstborn son; and she wrapped Him in cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.” Luke 2:7
It’s my prayer that you and I will make room for the Savior this Christmas. If we aren’t diligent in seeking Him and living for Him, we will turn inward and have a miserable existence.
The choir and ensemble will fill our sanctuary with the sound of Christmas this year. We will also be singing at the First United Methodist Church in Jackson on November 27 at 3 p.m. Come join us as we celebrate the birth of Jesus.
Singing for His glory,
A note from Taylor Stacey, Associate Minister of Music
"I've built my life on Jesus
He's never let me down
He's faithful in every season
So why would He fail now?
All of us put our faith in something every day. When we drive across a bridge, we trust the people who built it to have constructed it well enough to withstand our weight. As we sit in our houses, we trust that the roof will not fall on us. Almost everything we do in our lives involves trust in another person or entity. So why is it so hard to trust in Jesus during difficult times? In the song "Firm Foundation" by Cody Carnes, he reminds us that when we put our faith
in Jesus, we will never be disappointed with the result. This song proclaims that Jesus will not fail no matter how much the ground might shake or how hard the winds might blow. If we build our lives on the he Rock of Jesus, we can weather any storm.
"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash."
