C18–Worship Resources

The Commission on Worship is providing worship resources, including worship plans, sermon helps, worship folders, and newly commissioned music, for Advent and Christmas. The theme for our Christmas Eve service is A Light in the Darkness, which will stress how Christ is the answer to any stressor or fear one might be experiencing at Christmas time, or anytime. The theme for Advent Sundays is He Comes, Bearing Gifts.

***Please note for Advent 4: The first reading included all of verse 5. It should only be verse 5a - "And he will be their peace." An updated folder has been posted below.***
