Planning for this Series

For this Sunday, we chose the word “Search” because in the story in Luke, Jesus’ family has to search for him. When they finally find him, Jesus asks them, “Why were you searching for me?” With your worship planning team, remember that this is another great week to sing those familiar Christmas hymns. Even though it is December 30, and people may be gearing up to go back to work, it is still the Christmas season!
