Prayers for December

There were sheepherders camping in the neighborhood. They had set night watches over their sheep. Suddenly, God’s angel stood among them and God’s glory blazed around them. They were terrified. The angel said, “Don’t be afraid. I’m here to announce a great and joyful event that is meant for everybody, worldwide: A Savior has just been born in David’s town, a Savior who is Messiah and Master. This is what you’re to look for: a baby wrapped in a blanket and lying in a manger.” At once, the angel was joined by a huge angelic choir singing God’s praises: Glory to God in the heavenly heights, Peace to all men and women on earth who please him. From The Message.

Let us thank God for the wonderful events at Trinity in November – Deacon Ordination, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, Men’s Ministry BBQ, Music Ministry specials including the first Advent Concert, Operation Christmas Child, Thanksgiving Eve service and the sermon series on Job by our Pastor.
