The Second Sunday of Advent

“The days are coming,” declares the Lord,
“when I will raise up to David a righteous Branch,
a King who will reign wisely and do what is just and right in the land.
In his days Judah will be saved and Israel will live in safety.
This is the name by which he will be called:
The Lord Our Righteousness.”
Jeremiah 23:5-6

These are days to celebrate the promises of God.
Long ago, the prophets spoke of a coming day –
a day when God would send a Savior, a Comforter, a King.
With the birth of Jesus, God kept this most important promise –
and that is what we celebrate today!

Welcome to Huron Shores Fellowship!
We are glad that you are here.

GATHERING TO WORSHIP GOD
Words of Welcome and Fellowship Greeting
(Everyone, please sign the Worship Registration Book.)

Opening Prayer – Pastor Marlon Smith

The Lighting of the Second Advent Candle
The Candle of Peace
Scripture: Ephesians 1:3-8
Host family: Darrel and Lee Spragg

Tithes and Offerings

Joy to the World (270, vs. 1)
Joy to the world! the Lord is come; let earth receive her King.
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And heav’n and nature sing, and heav’n and nature sing,
And heav’n, and heav’n and nature sing.

Theme Verse: Remington MacArthur

Christmas Program, Part One
DRESS REHEARSAL: Miss Viv and Company

O Little Town of Bethlehem (250, vs. 1)
O little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie!
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep the silent stars go by.
Yet in thy dark streets shineth the everlasting Light;
The hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight.

Christmas Program, Part Two
JACOB’S GIFT: by Max Lucado

O Come, All Ye Faithful (249, vs. 1,2)
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!

Sing, choirs of angels; sing in exultation;
O sing, all ye bright hosts of heav’n above!
Glory to God, all glory in the highest!

O Holy Night (285, vs. 1)
O holy night! The stars are brightly shining;
It is the night of the dear Savior’s birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining,
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn!
Fall on your knees! O hear the angel voices!
O night divine, O night when Christ was born!
O night, O holy night, O night divine!

Silent Night (253, vs. 1,2)
Silent night, holy night, all is calm, all is bright
Round yon virgin mother and Child.
Holy Infant so tender and mild,
Sleep in heavenly peace, sleep in heavenly peace.

Silent night, holy night, shepherds quake at the sight.
Glories stream from heaven afar;
Heavenly hosts sing alleluia.
Christ the Savior is born! Christ the Savior is born!

What Child Is This? (281, vs. 1)
What Child is this, who, laid to rest, on Mary’s lap is sleeping?
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet,
While shepherds watch are keeping?

This, this is Christ, the King,
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing.
Haste, haste to bring Him laud, the Babe, the Son of Mary.

I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day (267, vs. 1,2,3,4,5)
I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth goodwill to men.

I thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along th’-unbroken song
Of peace on earth goodwill to men.

And in despair I bowed my head:
“There is no peace on earth,” I said,
“For hate is strong, and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men.”

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
God is not dead nor doth He sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,
With peace on earth, goodwill to men!

Then ringing singing on its way,
The world revolved from night to day
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime
Of peace on earth goodwill to men!

Away In A Manger: Miss Evie and Children

Scripture Reading: Matthew 25:45, Aiden Minton

The Service of Worship
November 26, 2017

Today is a new day, a gift from the Creator’s hand.
Today we offer praise and thanks to the One who made us.
Today we worship Jesus Christ, the One who has redeemed us.
Today we honor the Spirit who upholds and guides us.

Welcome to Huron Shores Fellowship!
We are glad that you are here.

GATHERING TO WORSHIP GOD

Words of Welcome and Fellowship Greeting
(Everyone, please sign the Worship Registration Book.)

Opening Prayer

Great and Mighty (129)
Great and mighty is the Lord our God,
Great and mighty is He.
Great and mighty is the Lord our God,
Great and mighty is He.
Lift up your banner, let the anthems ring –
Praises to our King;
Great and mighty is the Lord our God,
Great and mighty is He.

Count Your Blessings (786, vs. 1,2,4)…by request
When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed,
When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings – name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.

Count your blessings, name them one by one;
Count your blessings, see what God hath done.
Count your blessings, name them one by one;
Count your many blessings, see what God hath done.

Are you ever burdened with a load of care?
Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
Count your many blessings; every doubt will fly,
And you will be singing as the days go by.

So amid the conflict, whether great or small,
Do not be discouraged; God is over all.
Count your many blessings; angels will attend,
Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end.

You Are My All in All (583)
You are my strength when I am weak,
You are the treasure that I seek; You are my all in all.
Seeking You as a precious jewel, Lord, to give up, I’d be a fool;
You are my all in all.

Jesus, Lamb of God, Worthy is your name!
Jesus, Lamb of God, Worthy is your name!

Taking my sin, my cross, my shame,
Rising again I bless your name; You are my all in all.
When I fall down, You pick me up;
When I am dry, You fill my cup;
You are my all in all.

There’s Something About That Name (83)
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus!
There’s just something about that name!
Master, Savior, Jesus! Like the fragrance after the rain.
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus!
Let all heaven and earth proclaim:
Kings and kingdoms will all pass away,
But there’s something about that name!
