Welcome!

Lighting of the Advent Wreath –

PRAYER OF CONFESSION

Leader: Let us confess to God and before one another our sins and especially our being impatient and distracted while waiting.

People: We confess to You, O God, and before one another that we have sinned. We know You are always coming among us and yet we aren’t looking for You. You come as the Christ in so many ways and yet we often miss Your coming. There are so many things that we judge to be important and they keep our minds occupied. We forget what is really important and what is eternal. Wake us once more to Your presence and teach us to be ready for Your coming. Amen.

Leader: God is always coming to us and among us. Now God is coming to offer us forgiveness and grace and another chance to be faithful disciples.

Praise Song

Prayer of the Day

We worship You, O God our Shepherd. You call us to follow You as sheep follow their shepherd, so that you may lead us to life. Help us to hear Your voice and follow You, so that we may live as people of compassion and integrity.  Amen.

Now we join Christians everywhere in worshipping God through giving of our financial resources. If you are a visitor, you are our guest and we do not expect you to give an offering. Our offering and online giving are significant acts of worship.
