WELCOME & LIGHTING OF FIRST ADVENT CANDLE – Isaiah 42:5-7

Thus says God, the Lord…

“I am the Lord; I have called you in righteousness;

I will take you by the hand and keep you;

I will give you as a covenant for the people,

a light for the nations,

to open the eyes that are blind.”

CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 34:3

CONFESSION OF SIN

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – 2 Corinthians 5:21

For our sake

[God] made [Christ] to be sin

who knew no sin,

so that in him we might become

the righteousness of God.

Song –

Hark the Herald Angels Sing” by Charles Wesley and Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH – The Nicene Creed

We believe in one God, the Father Almighty,

Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God,

begotten of the Father before all worlds;

God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God;

begotten, not made,

being of one substance with the Father,

by whom all things were made.

Who, for us men and our salvation,

came down from heaven,

and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary,

and was made man;

and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate;

He suffered and was buried;

and the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures;

and ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father;

and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the quick and the dead;

whose kingdom shall have no end.

And we believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life;

who proceeds from the Father and the Son;

who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified;

who spoke by the prophets.

And we believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.

We acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins;

and we look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.

Amen.
