December 5, 2021

Second Sunday of Advent


Announcements


Worship & Music Leader: Brent Metz


Invocation


Scripture: Malachi 3:1-4


1 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.

2 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;

3 he will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he will purify the descendants of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, until they present offerings to the Lord in righteousness.

4 Then the offering of Judah and Jerusalem will be pleasing to the Lord as in the days of old and as in former years.


“His Name is Wonderful”


His name is wonderful,

His name is wonderful,

His name is wonderful,

Jesus my Lord


He is the mighty King,

Master of everything,

His name is wonderful

Jesus my Lord


He’s the great Shepherd,

The Rock of all ages,

Almighty God is He.

Bow down before Him;

Love and adore Him,

His name is Wonderful-Jesus my Lord.


“Great is Thy Faithfulness”


Great is Thy faithfulness, O God, my Father;

There is no shadow of turning with Thee.

Thou changest not; Thy compassions,

They fail not. As thou hast been

Thou forever wilt be.


Refrain

Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness!

Morning by morning new mercies I see.

All I have needed Thy hand hath provided.

Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!


Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,

Sun, moon, and stars in their courses above,

Join with all nature in manifold witness

To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.


Refrain

Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness!

Morning by morning new mercies I see.

All I have needed Thy hand hath provided.

Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!


Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,

Thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide,

Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow

Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!


Refrain

Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness!

Morning by morning new mercies I see.

All I have needed Thy hand hath provided.

Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!


“O Come All Ye Faithful”


1 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.


Refrain: O come, let us adore him, O come, let us adore him, O come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord!


2 Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation, sing, all ye citizens of heav’n above! Glory to God, all glory in the highest:


Refrain: O come, let us adore him, O come, let us adore him, O come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord!


3 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:


Refrain: O come, let us adore him, O come, let us adore him, O come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord!


Invitation

Confession

Pardon


Pastor Ryan: Christ our Lord invites to his table All who love him,

Who earnestly repent of their sin and seek to live in peace with one another.

Therefore, let us confess our sin before God and one another.


Congregation: Merciful God, We confess that we have not loved you with our whole heart. We have failed to be an obedient church.

We have not done your will, We have broken your law, we have rebelled against your love, We have not loved our neighbors, and we have not heard the cry of the needy.

Forgive us, we pray. Free us for joyful obedience, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen. (silent confession)


Hear the good news, Christ died for us while we were still sinners, which proves God’s love for us. In the name of Jesus Christ, You Are forgiven.


In the name of Jesus Christ, You are forgiven.

Glory to God, Amen.



Scripture: Luke 1:68-79


68 "Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, for he has looked favorably on his people and redeemed them.

69 He has raised up a mighty savior for us in the house of his servant David,

70 as he spoke through the mouth of his holy prophets from of old,

71 that we would be saved from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us.

72 Thus he has shown the mercy promised to our ancestors, and has remembered his holy covenant,

73 the oath that he swore to our ancestor Abraham, to grant us

74 that we, being rescued from the hands of our enemies, might serve him without fear,

75 in holiness and righteousness before him all our days.

76 And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High; for you will go before the Lord to prepare his ways,

77 to give knowledge of salvation to his people by the forgiveness of their sins.

78 By the tender mercy of our God, the dawn from on high will break upon us,

79 to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace."

Special in Music


Scripture: Philippians 1:3-11


3 I thank my God every time I remember you,

4 constantly praying with joy in every one of my prayers for all of you,

5 because of your sharing in the gospel from the first day until now.

6 I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ.

7 It is right for me to think this way about all of you, because you hold me in your heart, for all of you share in God's grace with me, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel.

8 For God is my witness, how I long for all of you with the compassion of Christ Jesus.

9 And this is my prayer, that your love may overflow more and more with knowledge and full insight

10 to help you to determine what is best, so that in the day of Christ you may be pure and blameless,

11 having produced the harvest of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ for the glory and praise of God.


“Prepare Us Lord”


Prepare our sight O Lord. Around us is the darkness

Come shine upon us that your truth we see

For this we wait: your presence here among us

To recognize Emmanuel prepare our sight

Prepare our hearts O Lord. Throw down our cherished idols

And teach us how to worship you alone

For this we wait and seek your holy presence

To let your Spirit fill our lives, prepare our hearts

Prepare the way of the Lord Straighten the curves in the road

Fill in valleys, level mountains That our Lord may come

Prepare our lives O Lord For you the Word Incarnate

The sacrifice to free us from all sin

For this we wait: redemption through our Savior

Relationship with you restored, prepare our lives

CHORUS

Prepare our future, Lord Your Kingdom’s consummation

Defeating every sorrow, pain and death

For this we wait: life spent with you forever

For glory you’ve prepared for us prepare us Lord

For glory you’ve prepared for us prepare us Lord


“God With Us”

Our Deliverer You are Savior In Your presence we find our strength Over everything Our redemption God with us You are God with us


Scripture: Luke 3:1-6


1 In the fifteenth year of the reign of Emperor Tiberius, when Pontius Pilate was governor of Judea, and Herod was ruler of Galilee, and his brother Philip ruler of the region of Ituraea and Trachonitis, and Lysanias ruler of Abilene,

2 during the high priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas, the word of God came to John son of Zechariah in the wilderness.

3 He went into all the region around the Jordan, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins,

4 as it is written in the book of the words of the prophet Isaiah, "The voice of one crying out in the wilderness: "Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

5 Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be made low, and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways made smooth;

6 and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.' "
