PRELUDE & LIGHTING OF CANDLES          

INTROIT          “Love Came Down at Christmas”            UMH 242

OPENING PRAYER  

LIGHTING OF THE ADVENT CANDLE  Sharron Hildebrant

     CHOIR               “Christ Be Our Light”             Farrel / Rainey

      LITANY

        The light shines in the darkness,

but the darkness has not overcome it.

During Advent our weary souls seek God’s daily strength.

The Lord gives strength to the weary and increases the

power of the weak.

We grow weary when fear overshadows faith.

The Lord gives strength to the weary and increases the

power of the weak.

We grow weary when destructive actions erupt in the world around us.

The Lord gives strength to the weary and increases the

power of the weak.

For all of us feeling weary this Advent season:

Grant that we might have the peace of Christ as we wait,

the love of Christ as we act, and the grace of Christ as we speak.

      CANDLE LIGHTING (2nd candle)                      

      SONG                                                                 Farrel / Rainey

                 Christ, be our light!  Shine in our hearts.      

                 Shine through the darkness, Christ, be our light.

                 Shine in your Church gathered today.
