Welcome

 

Call To Worship

Leader: Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, for he has looked favorably on his people and redeemed them.

Opening Hymn # 203 (UMH)

Hail To The Lord's Annointed

The Collect

Almighty God, give us grace to cast away the works of darkness, and put on the armor of light, now in the time of this mortal life in which your Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge both the living and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Pastoral Prayer and Time of Silence

Affirmation of Faith - The Apostles Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth;

And in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord;
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried;*
the third day he rose from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic** church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.

 

Response Hymn # 196 (UMH)

Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus (v. 1)

 

Invitation to the Table

 

Prayer of Confession and Assurance of Pardon 

Pastor: Lord God, we praise you for sending light into this world. We confess that we live as though the light had never defeated darkness. We confess that we ignore the Savior you sent to be among us and to live in us. We’ve kept the birth of your Son confined to the Christmas season and do not yearn for his coming each moment in our waiting hearts.

All: Forgive us for not opening our eyes to Jesus. Prepare us for His return. Help us rejoice in the light so that your grace can illuminate the darkened places of our hearts.  Amen.

Pastor: The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. In the name of Jesus Christ, the light of the world, you are forgiven.

People: In the name of Jesus Christ, the light of the world, you are forgiven.

All: Glory to God in the highest. Amen.

Amen.
