You might already know that outside of the United States, “Joy to the World” is more widely known as a “second-coming” song and not a Christmas carol at all. The lyrics more closely describe not the first coming, or birth, of Christ, but instead His second coming, which has not yet occurred. Yet our cultural influence is great, and “Joy to the World” has become forever tied to Christmas. We will use the backdrop of the song "Joy to the World" to share the glorious and joyous gift that Christ is to us - and that we can also share this good news with those around us.
See you in church! - Pastor Gary
