Gathering around God s Word Welcome and Announcements Please sign the Ritual of Friendship pad in the pews. Ringing of the Bell Lighting of the Christ Candle Randy and Beth Whipple Sung Response Creator of the Stars of Night Hymn 84, vs. 4 At your great name, O Jesus, now all knees must bend, all hearts must bow: all things on earth with one accord, like those in heaven, shall call you Lord. Call to Worship Adapted from Psalm 80 The grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all. The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light. For a child has been born for us, a Son has been given to us, He is Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. To us is born in the city of David a Savior, the Messiah, the Lord. And the Word became flesh and lived among us. Christ is born! Give him glory! Christ has come down from heaven! Receive him! Christ is now on earth! Exalt him! O earth, sing to the Lord! O you nations, praise him in joy, for he has been glorified! Amen. Opening Prayer Lisa Patterson *Hymn 113 Angels We Have Heard on High GLORIA Prayer of Confession (unison) God, in this season of Christmas, we acknowledge your Son Jesus to be the light of the world. Yet in his penetrating light, we acknowledge our darkness; in his constant grace our careless love; in his generous giving our sordid grasping; in his equal justice our dire prejudice; in his fortitude our fearful failure; in his inclusive love our deep divisions; in his pure sacrifice our soiling sins. But in his birth, we find hope, in his cross is our forgiveness, and in his resurrection

2 our enduring hope. The pardon and the promise now we claim, in penitence and faith. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Now hear us, Lord, as we offer in silence our personal sin that needs your forgiveness. (Silent Confession). Sung Response You Are the Lord, Giver of Mercy! Hymn 437 You are the Lord, giver of mercy! You are the Christ, giver of mercy! You are the Lord, giver of mercy! Declaration of Pardon In Jesus Christ we are forgiven. Thanks be to God! The Ten Commandments *Sung Response Angels We Have Heard on High Hymn 113 Gloria in excelsis Deo! Gloria in excelsis Deo!

Sermon Living Against the Grain Steve Plunkett Responding to God s Word *Hymn 114 Away in a Manger CRADLE SONG *Apostles Creed (unison) I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; he descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen. Prayers of the People and The Lord s Prayer (unison) Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and

3 forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen. Presentation of Tithes & Offerings Offertory The Little Road to Bethlehem Michael Head Rachael Fant, soprano *Doxology Hymn 607 Praise God, from whom all blessings flow; praise Christ, all people here below; Praise Holy Spirit evermore; praise Triune God, whom we adore.
