PRELUDE MUSIC 

WELCOME & OPENING PRAYER

OPENING HYMN PART ONE – “Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus” (UMH #196)

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.

ADVENT READING – The Candle of Hope 

OPENING HYMN PART TWO – “Hail to the Lord’s Anointed” (UMH #203, verses 1 and 4 only)

Hail to the Lord's Anointed,
great David's greater Son!
Hail in the time appointed,
his reign on earth begun!
He comes to break oppression,
to set the captive free;
to take away transgression,
and rule in equity.
 
To him shall prayer unceasing
and daily vows ascend;
his kingdom still increasing,
a kingdom without end.
The tide of time shall never
his covenant remove;
his name shall stand forever;
that name to us is love. 

PRAYER 

The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name;
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread – and forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil,
for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever.
Amen. 

SPECIAL MUSIC – Nancy Shaffer 

SCRIPTURE – Matthew 25:31-46

CLOSING HYMN – “O Come, O Come Emmanuel” (UMH #211, verses 1, 2, 5, and 6) 

O come, O come, Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel,
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear.
 
Refrain
Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.
 
O come, Thou Wisdom from on high,
And order all things far and nigh;
To us the path of knowledge show,
And teach us in her ways to go.
 
Refrain
 
O come, Thou Key of David, come,
And open wide our heavenly home;
The captives from their prison fee,
And conquer death's deep misery.
 
Refrain
 
O come, Thou Dayspring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Thy justice here;
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
And death’s dark shadows put to flight.
 
Refrain
