  Organ Postlude

         Throughout the ages, God made promises to His people through His Word. One of His great promises was the coming of the Messiah, who would bring salvation to the world. 'Twas the Year Before Christmas gives us a chance to step back in time. Listen! God's promise of a Messiah is about to be fulfilled.
