The Generous Father

Matthew 7:7-11

Service
Doxology/Amen
[Youtube] [iTunes] [Spotify]

Call to Worship
Long ago, God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets;
now God has spoken to us by a son.
God made the world through the Son,
who has been appointed heir of all things
and the perfect reflection of God’s glory.
The son is the exact representation of God’s being,
sustaining all things by his powerful word.
Praise God for the gift of the son.
We welcome the light of the world!
-based on Hebrews 1:1-3

Confession of Sin
God of all nations, we praise you that in Christ the barriers that have separated humanity are torn down. You have adopted us into an international family with brothers and sisters from every nation. Yet we confess our slowness to open our hearts and minds to people of other lands, tongues, and races.
Deliver us from the sins of fear and prejudice, that we may move toward the day when all are truly one in Jesus Christ.
Amen.

Assurance of Pardon
In him was life, and that life was the light of men. That light shines in the darkness, and yet the darkness did not overcome it.
He was in the world, and the world was created through him, and yet the world did not recognize him. He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. But to all who did receive him, he gave them the right to be children of God, to those who believe in his name, who were born, not of natural descent, or of the will of the flesh, or of the will of man, but of God.
-John 1:4-5;10-13

Call to Worship
Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth! Serve the LORD with gladness!
Come into his presence with singing!
Know that the LORD, he is God!
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!
For the LORD is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations.
Psalm 100

Be Thou My Vision

Confession of Sin
O Lord, open my lips,
and my mouth will declare your praise.
For you will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it;
You will not be pleased with a burnt offering.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.
Psalm 51:15-17

Reading 1
The Advent wreath is a circle with no beginning and no end. It is a symbol of God’s unending love and faithfulness.
The shepherds were the first to hear
the joyful announcement of Christ’s birth—
the good news of great joy for all the people.

Upon seeing the baby Jesus, the shepherds spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed.
We have also heard this wonderful news.
We welcomed the message with the joy given by the Holy Spirit.

Though we have not seen Jesus, we love him;
and even though we do not see him now, we believe in him.
And we are filled with inexpressible and glorious joy.
—based on Luke 2:10, 17-18; 1 Thessalonians 1:6; 1 Peter 1:8, NIV

Oh Holy Night

Reading 2
That night there were shepherds staying in the fields nearby, guarding their flocks of sheep. Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. They were terrified, but the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! And you will recognize him by this sign: You will find a baby wrapped snugly in strips of cloth, lying in a manger.” Suddenly, the angel was joined by a vast host of others—the armies of heaven—praising God and saying,“Glory to God in highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.”
-Luke 2:8-14
