PRELUDE    “O Holy Night      Solo by Chikita Wallace      Click HERE for Hymnal Worship

LIGHTING OF THE CHRIST CANDLE

We light these candles as a sign of the coming light of Christ.

         In Christ, there is life and light for all people.

Now lift up your heads and rejoice: your Redeemer is drawing near.

Prepare the way of the Holy One!

All flesh will see the salvation of God.

Christ has come to baptize us with the Holy Spirit and with fire.

The Mighty One has done great things for us;

Holy is the name of God.

Behold, there is good news of great joy for all people:

To us is born a Savior, the Messiah.

         Glory to God in the highest, and peace to God's people on earth!

      

CALL TO WORSHIP                               

The glory of the Lord shines around us.

The angels tell the story: Do not fear; for see,

I am bringing you good news of great joy.

         A child has been born for us, a son given to us.

He is named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,

Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

         Glory to God in the highest heaven! And peace to all on earth!

Let us go to Bethlehem

and see this thing that has taken place.

Let us glorify the One who is the Messiah, the Lord.

         Come, let us adore him! Let us worship God!
