CALL TO WORSHIP

L: The days are coming, says the LORD, when I will fulfill the promise I         made to my people long ago.

P: The people walking in darkness have seen a great light. 

L: In those days, a righteous branch will spring forward from David’s 

family tree. He will bring justice and righteousness to the land.

P: And his name will be called Wonderful Counselor, the Mighty 

God, Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.

Advent Prayer

Please join me in affirming our faith through prayer.

Lord Jesus Christ, we await your coming, We wait filled with hope, Knowing your light will shine in the darkness. We wait anticipating your peace, Believing that one day it will fill our world. We wait embracing your love, May we reach out to share it with our neighbors. We wait with joy, Bubbling us in expectation of your birth. Lord we wait, Come soon and fill us with your life. Amen.

SCRIPTURE READING John 1:1-9

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. There was a man sent from God whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world.

RESPONSE TO SCRIPTURE

One: This is the word of God for the people of God.
All: Thanks be to God.
