WELCOME CALL TO WORSHIP O Come, Root of Jesse’s Tree, an ensign of thy people be, before thee rulers silent fall all peoples on thy mercy call Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel. O root of Jesse, who stands for an ensign of the people, Before whom kings shall keep silence and to whom the Gentiles shall make their supplication. Come, and deliver us and tarry not.

We light this candle as a symbol of the Prince of Peace. May the visitation of your Holy Spirit, O God, Make us ready for the coming of Jesus, Our hope and Joy. O Come, O Come, Emmanuel.
LIGHTING OF THE ADVENT CANDLE #2090 TFWS Verse 3
Merciful God, You sent your messengers the prophets to preach repentance and prepare the way for our salvation. Give us grace to heed their warnings and forsake our sins, that we may celebrate aright the commemoration of the nativity, and may await with joy the coming in glory of Jesus Christ Our Redeemer; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, One God, for ever and ever. Amen.

DOXOLOGY “Praise God from Whom all Blessings Flow” #94 UMH
The Lord be with you. And also with you. Lift up your hearts. We lift them up to the Lord. Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. It is right to give our thanks and praise.
...And so, with your people on earth and all the company of heaven
we praise your name and join their unending hymn:
Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,
Heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.
...And so, in remembrance of these your mighty acts in Jesus Christ,
we offer ourselves in praise and thanksgiving
as a holy and living sacrifice, in union with Christ's offering for us,
as we proclaim the mystery of faith.
Christ has died; Christ is risen; Christ will come again.
...Through your Son Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit in your holy Church,
all honor and glory is yours, almighty Father (God ), now and forever. Amen.
