ENTERING GOD’S HOUSE

CALL TO WORSHIP
Leader: Let us go, just as we are, to see what has happened. let us go with the shepherds:
People: let us go and find the One of whom the angels sang.
Leader: Let us go with those who are wise:
People: let us go and find the One who brings God’s truth to us.
Leader: Let us go with the poor in spirit, and in flesh; let us go with those who are humbled by life:
People: Let us find the Glory of God born in a stable, and placed in a feeding trough.
Leader: Let us go with our friends and family, let us go with our neighbors and with strangers, let us go with all the children of God:
People: let us go to find the One who comes to lead us home to God’s kingdom.
Leader: O come, let us go to the Babe of Bethlehem; O come, let us adore him!
People: Christ our Lord!

LIGHTING OF THE ADVENT WREATH by The Stephany Family

LIGHT FOUR CANDLES
Light four candles. May they ever glow. Prophets said to Israel,
“For a virgin will birth us a son to be named Immanuel.
He is from the house of David knowing wrong, but choosing right.”
Light four candles. Let them brightly burn for the Son is God’s delight.
