Christmas love from our family to yours

The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told. – Luke 2:20

Rebekah welcomes the crowd

It is a wonderful Christmas Day! Rebekah and I wish for all of you a very merry and blessed Christmas. Or, like my granddaughter Beks epitomizes, Very Merry, Very Bright!

So here are a few photos from Christmas Eve at WFPC, an amazing celebration of joy and passion for following Jesus. I have attended churches with multiple Christmas Eve services before, but here we don’t run through the same service several times, each one is 100% unique.

1-IMG_E2307Kids’ worship was a hoot. Lessons and carols at 7:00 was the most beautiful I have experienced in years. Communion at midnight was the perfect end to the day.

So I have no words for you to read today, just a few photos and the promise of more when I can actually come up with a few consecutive minutes to write.

Peace, Light, Hope, Grace, Love, Promise, Joy, and Christ’s constant invitation – DEREK
