Christmas Eve, 2017

This Sunday at Park Church is Christmas Eve, and the fourth week of Your Kingdom Come: Gospel Promises from Isaiah, our series for Advent. Our service times will be slightly different this week for the holiday—10am, 5pm, and 6:30pm. Here’s how you can prepare for worship:

1. Read through our main text, Isaiah 9:1–7.

The wait has been long, we have walked in darkness and dwelt in a land of deep darkness, but no more. The “sunrise from on high” has visited us (Luke 1:78); we’ve seen a great light. Of the increase of that light and of the government of that light there shall be no end. It will be for peace, justice, and righteousness. A Son is given.

2. Read, pray and sing through the service:
