Christmas at LRBC

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14

Every year, we love to see the magic of Christmas shine in the eyes of our children. Their excitement touches all of us as they eagerly anticipate savory meals, sweet treats, and brightly wrapped packages.

But for Christians, Christmas is much more than magic. We belong to an absolute, sovereign God who gave His Son Jesus Christ to die so we could live! In perfect humility and obedience, Jesus—Creator of the universe—left His heavenly home, became one of us, and walked beside us. And He walks beside us still! Through Jesus we are healed, restored, and given everlasting life. No earthly gift matches that!

Christmas shows us how much we are loved! It tells of our true destiny.

Will you join us as we celebrate the birth of our Lord?

Hanging of the Greens

The hanging of the greens is an annual service in which we worship God while adorning our church with Advent and Christmas decorations. The ceremony combines prayer and singing with symbols of preparation for the birth of our Lord. We hang colorful wreaths and garlands, arrange poinsettias, and reverently light the candles of an Advent wreath. An important part of the ceremony involves the entire congregation, which decorates our lighted Christmas tree with Chrismons.

God’s Gift of Music

Here’s some music downloaded from YouTube for your enjoyment.

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

“For unto us a child is born” – G.F. Handel
