GATHERING TO WORSHIP GOD

Welcome and Invitation to Worship: Pastor Joshua Ray
Prelude

Congregational Hymn
What Child Is This? (281)
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.

So bring Him incense, gold, and myrrh;
Come, peasant, king to own Him.
The King of kings salvation brings;
Let loving hearts enthrone Him.

Welcome: Only A Minute: Emma Hardies

Prayer: Before We Start: Marissa Kollien
Pastor Josh

Lighting of the Fourth Advent Candle: Merick Minton
Scripture Reading: Matthew 1:21-23 and Luke 1:30-33

Congregational Hymn
O Come, All Ye Faithful (249)
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!

Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, born this happy morning;
Jesus, to Thee be all glory giv’n:
Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing!

The First Noel (265)
The first Noel, the angel did say,
Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay;
In fields where they lay keeping their sheep,
On a cold winter’s night that was so deep.

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.

They looked up and saw a star,
Shining in the east, beyond them far,
And to the earth it gave great light,
And so it continued both day and night.

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.

He rules the world with truth and grace
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness
And wonders of His love, and wonders of His love,
And wonders, wonders of His love.

The Third Sunday of Advent

Worship Leader: Betty Brown
Pianist: Helen Timm

“If you seek Him, He will be found by you…”
I Chronicles 28:9

“For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.”
Luke 19:10

God’s Word describes two different kinds of seeking.
First, we are encouraged to seek God.
And we are promised that our search will bear fruit –
God will allow Himself to be found!
Second, we are told that God is a seeking God.
He is looking for us with the goal of salvation in mind.
Praise God that He searches after those who are lost!
And praise God that He allows Himself to be found!

The Second Sunday of Advent

Worship Leader: Phil Cook

“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.

Dear Senior High Parents,

3. There are 20 slots available – filled on a first come, first serve basis

5. An early reminder that there will be no electronics on the trip.

I’m looking forward to a great trip! Any questions? Don’t hesitate to contact me!

Winter Weather Policy

crystalsnowflakeHuron Shores Fellowship reserves the right to cancel services if weather conditions become dangerous. When this occurs, the decision will be made as early as possible. Local radio stations will be notified. We will also post the cancellation on this web page. Those subscribed to this webpage (by entering their e-mail address in the box in the upper right corner under the header) will receive an e-mail notice.

For Wednesday night activities, we will follow the decision of Alpena Public Schools. If it’s a snow day, then we will cancel our Wednesday schedule.

For other church activities and meetings, leaders of those activities or meetings will make their own decisions. Please check directly with the leaders if you are unsure.

We want our members and friends to feel comfortable about their personal decisions regarding travel in bad weather. We encourage you to use your best judgment. Our fellowship covers a large geographical area and some will be more adversely affected than others. If you determine that it isn’t wise for you to drive, then we encourage you to stay home. Above all – be safe.

A Reminder about Our Snow Policy
With winter approaching, here’s a reminder about our snow
policy. In general, whenever it’s possible, we will plan to keep
our regular schedule. If weather is extremely bad, however, we
will cancel services. We’ll try to make that decision as early as
possible, and we will communicate with local radio stations. We
will also do our best to post cancellation notices on our website. www.huronshoresfellowship.org If you cannot find the information,
please call the church office. Please make sure you are subscribed
to our new blog on our web site so you can receive special notices.
For Wednesday activities, we will follow the decision of the local
public schools. If it’s a snow day, then we will cancel our Wednesday schedule.
 
For other church activities on other days, we’ll leave it to the individual groups to make their own decision. Please check directly with your
group leader for those decisions.
 
Even though we will try to maintain our regular schedule, we want
you to feel comfortable about your own personal decision about
traveling in bad weather. If your area happens to be dangerous, or if
you are snowed in, we encourage you to use your own judgment.
Please do not travel if it seems unsafe to you. Be assured that we will understand your decision and – even if you have responsibilities
here – we will find a way to cover for you. If you are able to come,
please come. But if you determine that it’s not wise to drive, then
we encourage you to stay home.
