Prelude Do You Hear What I Hear  Praise Band

* Call to Worship
One: We gather to sing a song of joy!
Many: We come to celebrate the birth of the Christ;
One: Emmanuel, God with us;
Many: Love has come into the world, a light shines in the darkness.
One: What song do we sing for this wonderful gift?
ALL: We sing a song of joy!

* Opening Hymn Angels We Have Heard On High  Hymn #113 (all)

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
God our Creator, of all that is and shall be: our hearts are filled with such wonder and thankfulness. Out of love you came into our world, fully human, yet fully divine. You call us close to you, to reconcile us in perfect grace; forgiven, clean, renewed in light. In the glow of the manger we begin again to understand the wisdom of children, letting our hearts receive without question the invitation and the gift. We rejoice, O Lord, we accept in humility your hope, your peace, your love and your joy for us. When we forget the promise of this holy season, forgive us we pray. When our sins cast shadows of darkness, redeem us through your grace. Sustain the child in our hearts, and lead us forward always in your name, giving as you give, loving as you love. We ask in Jesusý@ C F!

(A moment for silent reflection)

Assurance of Pardon
Who is in a position to condemn? Only Christ, and Christ died for us, was risen for us, and reigns in power over us. Sisters and brothers hear this good news. Through Christ we are forgiven and reconciled with the Creator of all.

For thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.
