Pastor Haywood's Text and Theme for December 9th:
"The Word of God Sanctifies"
Note: The following songs of praise and worship are chosen prayerfully, in hopes that they will be used by God to prepare fertile ground in our hearts to more effectively receive the seed of His Word.
Lyric videos for each of the following songs that we'll be singing December 9th have been compiled into one YouTube playlist for your convenience and edification. You can access that playlist by clicking here.

Special Music: "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" (Click on the song's title for a lyric video for this slightly different arrangement of the well-known Wesley hymn.) The praise team's prayer is that we all will focus more intently on the song's God-exalting lyrics as we sing this arrangement during the offertory on December 9th. Then, next Sunday, we'll all sing it together.
