Call To Worship

First Sunday of Advent: HOPE

LEADER: Let us praise our Lord Jesus Christ.

ALL: Alleluia! Jesus is coming!

LEADER: He humbled himself to dwell among us, 
born a helpless baby.

ALL: Alleluia! Jesus is coming!

LEADER: He is the Light of the World, the Bread of Heaven, 
the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

ALL: Alleluia! Jesus is coming!

LEADER: He died, rose from the dead, and lives in heaven. He will come again because he loves us.

ALL: Alleluia! Jesus is coming!

LEADER: “Let us pray together.”

ALL: Father, all-powerful and ever-living God, we do well always and everywhere to give you thanks through Jesus Christ, our Lord. When he humbled himself to come among us as a man, he fulfilled the plan you formed long ago and opened for us the way to salvation. We light this candle today to remind us of the HOPE found only in Christ Jesus. Now we watch for the day when He will come again in his glory. All praise and honor to Him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen!
