Introit

Call to Worship                       “See, I am sending my messenger to prepare the way before me, and the Lord whom you seek will suddenly come to his temple.  The messenger of the covenant in whom you delight - indeed, he is coming, says the Lord of hosts.  But who can endure the day of his coming, and who can stand when he appears? For he is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap; he will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he will purify them like gold and silver, until they present offerings to the Lord in righteousness.  Then the offering of Judah and Jerusalem will be pleasing to the Lord as in the days of old and as in former years.”                                             Malachi 3:1-4

 

Advent Candle Lighting       See. I am sending my messenger to prepare the way before me, says the Lord of hosts.

                                                      The light of hope has awakened our spirits.

                                                      A voice cries out in the wilderness, “Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.”

                                                      Renew in us your covenant, O God, that we may be ready for the dawn of your salvation.

                                                      We light a second candle to bring light to every darkness, and to guide us in the way of peace.

                                                      With gratitude for your light, O God, we will prepare to welcome a new birth of your love
