Advent 3 Worship

Today is the day that's traditionally called Gaudete Sunday. Gaudete is Latin for rejoice, and it's when we light the pink candle on the Advent Wreath—the candle of Joy.

The pastor's message is about Philippians 4.4-7, and talks about the nature of Christian joy. The hymn of the week is Joy to the World.

Here's the order of worship on the video found at the bottom of this post:
  • 00:00 Chimes
  • 00:26 Prélude: Comfort, Comfort Ye, My People; Once in Royal David's City
