The baby we’re looking at this week is John the Baptist, born to Zechariah and Elizabeth. The key texts are Luke 1:5-25 and Luke 1:57-80, but we’ll also be looking at Malachi 4:5-6, John 1:19-14 and John 3:25-30. The worship theme is heralding the arrival of the Messiah, and the visual theme is trumpets in the stars!
Angels from the Realms of Glory
O Come All Ye Faithful This is the version by Casting Crowns, but pretty ‘faithful’ to the original melody.
And for those who were not born recently Art Garfunkel
Go Tell it on the Mountain
And again, for those not born recently, James Taylor
Offertory: All Who Hear – Young Oceans (you can download this EP for free at noisetrade.com) We plan to do this song with none of their electronic sounds, a much shorter intro/outro but with all the same chords/words and melody.
Behold the Lamb – Andrew Peterson
