The Children of Good Shepherd
Sermon text: Psalm 96:12
“All the trees of the forest will sing for joy.”
It’s the time of year when certain trees become very important. For many of us it begins with spending time wandering through rows and rows of pine trees until we find the one just right that we want to give center stage in our homes. And whether you have a real or an artificial tree, you probably take great time and effort rearranging your furniture, untangling colored lights, hanging precious ornaments and stringing glittering tinsel.

What would Christmas be without a Christmas tree? It stands on display so proudly, giving off light and beauty. It provides a great place for us to set our wrapped Christmas gifts, and it serves as a shelter for our precious manger crèche.

Tonight we will learn about the TREES OF CHRISTMAS. We’ll discover that the Christmas tree isn’t the only tree of Christmas. There are other trees that show us that God cares for us. They all tell us about God’s great love for us, and his wonderful gift of life and salvation.

We value your friendship and the opportunity to share the love of Jesus together with you!
