Hymn Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus (UMH 196, lyrics)
Call to Worship
People of God, lift up your hearts:
the Lord looks with favor upon the lowly.
Holy is the name of the Lord,
whose mercy is great across the generations.
Strong is the arm of the Lord,
who scatters the proud and feeds the hungry.
With all our hearts, let us glorify the Lord
who uprights the world and comes to our aid.
Hymn: What Child Is This (UMH 219, lyrics)
First Advent Candle: Peace (Coloring Page)
As we journey down this Advent road,
grant us the courage to make peace.
Peace in our hearts,
Peace in our homes,
Peace in our communities.

Prayer of Thanksgiving
O God, you blessed Mary by inviting her to give
birth to your only Son, Jesus Christ. You have
blessed us, as well, with the gift of Christ and the
abundant life he provides. Out of all these blessings,
we give you back these offerings, faithfully trusting
in your promise of a coming day of peace. Amen.
