Following the success of last year’s German Christmas Service at Holy Cross Lutheran Church of Davenport, we’re looking forward to hosting another one this year. The service is scheduled to take place tomorrow, Sunday, December 14, at 4 PM. The Rev. John Preus of Trinity Lutheran Church in Clinton, Iowa, is scheduled to preach.
Here is a PDF of the bulletin we’ll be using. Many of the hymns are available at the Free Lutheran Chorale-Book, including “Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland” (“Savior of the Nations, Come“), “Christum wir sollen loben schon” (“Christ Shall We Now Begin to Praise“), “Allein Gott in der Höh sei Ehr” (“All Glory Be to God on High“), “Vom Himmel hoch da komm ich her” (“From Heaven Above to Earth I Come),” “Ein Kind geborn zu Bethlehem” (“A Child Is Born in Bethlehem“), “Fröhlich soll mein Herze springen” (“All My Heart This Night Rejoices“), and “Uns ist ein Kindlein heut geborn” (“To Us Is Born This Day a Child“). Here’s a video of last year’s service to give you an idea of what to expect:
Hope to see you there as we join in celebrating the birth of God in the flesh, the Lord Christ Jesus!
