Call To Worship:

3rd Sunday of Advent: JOY


The shepherds were the first to hear

the announcement of Christ’s birth—

the good news of great joy for all people.


Upon seeing the baby Jesus,

the shepherds spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child. All who heard it were amazed.


We have also heard this wonderful news:
the Word made flesh came to dwell among us.


Though we have not seen Jesus, we love him; even though we do not see him now

we look forward to His coming again.

LEADER: Let us pray.


Loving God, we thank you for the joy you bring us in Christ Jesus. By your Spirit come to us anew.

May we receive you with joy, as the shepherds;

with gratitude, as Simeon;

with obedience, as Mary;

with love, as you have loved us.

We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen!
