WELCOME 

Call to Worship (Psalm 96)

L: Let everything praise God!

P: All the mountains and hills, the valleys and plains shall resound with praises to God.

L: Let everything that has breath praise God!

P: All creatures on earth, in the skies, in the seas shall sing praise to God!  Let us, here and now, praise God!

P: We praise God with our whole heart and soul and strength! AMEN.

Unison Prayer

Lord of mercy and joy, You have given to us the blessing of your Son Jesus who will make known your presence, forgiveness, and love to each one of us. Be with us this day and keep our hearts and minds open to receive your love and peace. Enable each of us to be people of joy and hope as we encounter others. We ask this in Jesus’ Name. 

A time of hymns:

Scripture readings: Isaiah 61:10-62:3Psalm 148; Galatians 4:4-7; Luke 2:22-40

Our Christmas Affirmation

L: Advent hope moves us; Advent love leads us; Advent joy stirs us; Advent peace stills us, that we might affirm our King Jesus.

P: It is time we set flame to this Advent affirmation by lighting the Christ Candle.

ALL: We believe that Jesus is the Son of God. He was born of the Virgin Mary in Bethlehem of Judea. He was the long-awaited Messiah whose coming was prophesied. The same Jesus lives today in our hearts. He deserves our highest loyalty and total commitment. In Jesus Christ our hope is fulfilled; our love is consummated; our joy is complete; and our peace is sealed.

L: Rejoice, a Savior is born.

P: A savior is born, indeed. Joy to the world!
