Sunday sermon, Dec. 13, 2020

Today’s scripture reading is from the book of Isaiah, 12:2. The passage is one of thanksgiving to God, and Pastor Tom Hartshorn reminds us there is joy in gratitude. In these challenging times, we may not feel joyous, but we can all find things to be thankful for that give us joy. After the sermon, Director of Music Joey DiGuglielmo plays “O Come, O Come Emmanuel,” adaptation by Thomas Helmore, arranged by Rebecca Johnson.
