Dan Gill CHORAL INTROIT Sing We Now of Christmas, Vs. 2 CALL TO WORSHIP (Responsive) I have good news for you. Your Savior has been born -- Christ the Lord! Glory to God in the highest, and peace to his people on earth. PRAYER OF INVOCATION O God of Elizabeth and Mary, you visited your servants with news of the world's redemption in the coming of the Savior. Make our hearts leap with joy, and fill our mouths with songs of praise, that we may announce glad tidings of peace, and welcome the Christ in our midst. Amen. LIGHTING OF THE ADVENT CANDLE *HYMN No. 220, Vs. 1, 2, 4 OFFERTORY PRAYER THE OFFERING OF OUR GIFTS *DEDICATION OF THE OFFERING No. 95 Praise God, from whom all blessings flow; Praise him, all creatures here below; Praise him above, ye heavenly host; Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen. *HYMN No. 230, Vs. 1, 2, 4 ANTHEM Angels from the Realms of Glory The Doxology O Little Town of Bethlehem Close to Christmas Adore Noel CHILDREN S TIME Robert Glenn (Following this part of the service, preschool children may go to the nursery, and children in grades K-6 may go to Creation Station.) PRAYERS AND CONCERNS OF THE PEOPLE Now the birth of Jesus the Messiah took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been engaged to Joseph, but before they lived together, she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. Her husband Joseph, being a righteous man and unwilling to expose her to public disgrace, planned to dismiss her quietly.

3 SERMON But just when he had resolved to do this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife, for the child conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will bear a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins. All this took place to fulfill what had been spoken by the Lord through the prophet: Look, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel, which means, God is with us. When Joseph awoke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him; he took her as his wife, but had no marital relations with her until she had borne a son; and he named him Jesus. The word of God for the people of God. Thanks be to God. *APOSTLES CREED No. 881 *HYMN No. 236, Vs. 1, 5 *BENEDICTION His Name Is Called Emmanuel Rev. Scott Wilks While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks *CHORAL BENEDICTION (Following the Benediction, please greet one another with joy and affection.) *POSTLUDE *Please stand as you may be able. (Items in BOLD are unison.)
