Prelude
Opening Prayer

PRAISING GOD WITH OUR SINGING
Hark! The Herald Angels Sing (277, all)
Hark! The herald angels sing Glory to the newborn King
Peace on earth and mercy mild God and sinners reconciled
Joyful all ye nations rise join the triumph of the skies
With th’angelic hosts proclaim Christ is born in Bethlehem
Hark! The herald angels sing “Glory to the newborn King.”

Christ by highest heaven adored Christ the everlasting Lord
Late in time behold Him come Offspring of the Virgin’s womb
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see Hail th’incarnate Deity
Pleased as Man with men to dwell Jesus our Emmanuel
Hark! The herald angels sing “Glory to the newborn King.”

Hail the heav’n-born Prince of Peace
hail the Sun of Righteousness
Light and life to all He brings ris’n with healing in His wings
Mild He lays His glory by born that man no more may die
Born to raise the sons of earth born to give them second birth
Hark! The herald angels sing “Glory to the newborn King.”

Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus (244, all)
Come, Thou long-expected Jesus,
Born to set Thy people free.
From our fears and sins release us;
Let us find our rest in Thee.
Israel’s Strength and Consolation,
Hope of all the earth Thou art;
Dear Desire of every nation,
Joy of every longing heart.

Born Thy people to deliver,
Born a Child and yet a King,
Born to reign in us forever,
Now Thy gracious kingdom bring.
By Thine own eternal Spirit,
Rule in all our hearts alone;
By Thine all sufficient merit,
Raise us to Thy glorious throne.

Let’s Worship and Adore Him (247)
Let’s worship and adore him,
let’s worship and adore him,
Let’s worship and adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

For He alone is worthy,
for He alone is worthy,
For He alone is worthy,
Christ the Lord.

WORSHIPING GOD THROUGH OUR GIVING

The Giving of Tithes and Offerings

Choir Anthem

Scripture Reading: Luke 3:3-6, 3:15-18 and 3:21-22
Evelyn Avery
This is the Word of the Lord. Thanks be to God!

Love Has Come (256, vs. 1,2)
Love has come– a light in the darkness!
Love explodes in the Bethlehem skies.
See, all heaven has come to proclaim it;
Hear how their song of joy arises: Love! Love!
Born unto you, a Savior! Love! Love!
Glory to God on high.

Love is born! Come share in the wonder;
Love is God now asleep in the hay.
See the glow in the eyes of His mother;
What is the name her heart is saying?
Love! Love! Love is the name she whispers;
Love! Love! Jesus, Immanuel.

WORSHIPING GOD THROUGH HEARING HIS WORD
Morning Prayer – Pastor Jack Williams

Message: “Who Is This King of Glory?”
Psalm 24:7-10

Come, All Ye Faithful (249, all)
O come, all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant;
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem!
Come and behold Him – born the King of angels!

O come, let us adore Him!
O come, let us adore Him!
O come, let us adore Him – Christ, the Lord!
