Go Tell It On The Mountain
  Go tell it on the mountain,

Over the hills and everywhere;

Go tell it on the mountain that

     Jesus Christ is born.
While shepherds kept their watching
          o’er silent flocks

             by night,
Behold, throughout the heavens,

    there shone a holy light.
  Go tell it on the mountain,

Over the hills and everywhere;

Go tell it on the mountain that

     Jesus Christ is born.
The shepherds feared and trembled
            when, lo!

         Above the earth
Rang out the angel chorus that
   hailed our Savior’s birth.
  Go tell it on the mountain,

Over the hills and everywhere;

Go tell it on the mountain that

     Jesus Christ is born.
Down in a lowly manger

     the humble

   Christ was born
And God sent us salvation that
    blessed Christmas morn
  Go tell it on the mountain,

Over the hills and everywhere;

Go tell it on the mountain that

     Jesus Christ is born.
  Go tell it on the mountain,

Over the hills and everywhere;

Go tell it on the mountain that

     Jesus Christ is born.
  Welcome &
Announcements!
          Call To Worship
Leader:   “From ages past no one has heard, no
          ear has perceived, no eye has seen any
          God besides you, who works for those
          who wait for him.”
People:   “The glory of the Lord shall be
          revealed, and all people shall see it
          together.”
Leader:   Blessed is he who comes in the name of
          the Lord.
People:   Blessed be the name of the Lord.
          Call To Worship
Leader:    “The voice of one crying out in the
           wilderness: Prepare the way of the
           Lord, make his paths straight.”
People:   “The people who walked in darkness
          have seen a great light; those who lived
          in a land of deep darkness – on them a
          light has shined.”
Mary’s Boy Child
 Mary’s boy child Jesus Christ,
 Was born on Christmas Day.
And man will live for evermore,
  Because of Christmas Day.
Long time ago in Bethlehem,
   So the Holy Bible said,
Mary’s boy child Jesus Christ,
Was born on Christmas Day.
Hark, now hear the angels sing,
    A king was born today,
And man will live for evermore,
  Because of Christmas Day.
Mary’s boy child Jesus Christ,
Was born on Christmas Day.
While shepherds watch their flocks
             by night,
They see a bright new shining star,
 They hear a choir sing a song,
The music seemed to come from
              afar.
Hark, now hear the angels sing,
    A king was born today,
And man will live for evermore,
  Because of Christmas Day.
Oh a moment still worth was a
              glow,
All the bells rang out there were
    tears of joy and laughter,
      People shouted
“Let everyone know, there is
hope for all to find peace.”
Now Joseph and his wife, Mary,
Came to Bethlehem that night,
They found no place to bear her
             child,
Not a single room was in sight.
And then they found a little nook
      in a stable all forlorn,
 And in a manger cold and dark,
   Mary’s little boy was born.
Hark, now hear the angels sing,
    A king was born today,
And man will live for evermore,
  Because of Christmas Day.
Mary’s boy child Jesus Christ,
Was born on Christmas Day.
Oh a moment still worth was a
              glow,
All the bells rang out there were
    tears of joy and laughter,
      People shouted
“Let everyone know, there is
hope for all to find peace.”
Oh my Lord…
Lighting the Advent Candle
 “The Fourth Advent Candle”
    Scripture
      Isaiah 9: 6-7

Scripture Taken from the Holy Bible
Today’s New International Version
                  Isaiah 9: 6-7
                    The Birth of Jesus

 6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the
          government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
           Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

      7 Of the increase of his government and peace
  there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne
and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with
justice and righteousness from that time on and forever.
   The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this.
                    Luke 2: 1-7
                    The Birth of Jesus

5He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to
be married to him and was expecting a child. 6While they
 were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7and
she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in
 cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no
              guest room available for them.
   The Message

“Only God Can Make A
     Christmas”
   Offering

We Wish You A
Merry Christmas
                    Luke 1: 26-38
                 The Birth of Jesus Foretold

29Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what
kind of greeting this might be. 30But the angel said to her, “Do
not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. 31You will
conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus.
32He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High.
   The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David,
    33and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his
                    kingdom will never end.”

  34“How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a
                          virgin?”
                    Luke 1: 26-38
                 The Birth of Jesus Foretold

 35The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and
 the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy
one to be born will be called b the Son of God. 36Even Elizabeth
  your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she
  who was said to be unable to conceive is in her sixth month.
                       37For no word from
                        God will ever fail.”

38“I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May it be to me
      according to your word.” Then the angel left her.
     Prayer for Christmas
Almighty God, you made this holy night
  shine with the brightness of the true
 Light. Grant that here on earth we may
 walk in the light of Jesus’ presence and
in the last day wake to the brightness of
 his glory; through your only Son, Jesus
  Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns
 with you and the Holy Spirit, one God,
         now and forever. Amen.
     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, the power and the glory,
                  for ever and ever.
                        Amen
Silent Night
     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
  Heav'nly hosts sing alleluia
   Christ the Saviour is born
   Christ the Saviour is born
     Silent night holy night
   Son of God love's pure light
Radiant beams from the holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
     Jesus Lord at Thy birth
     Jesus Lord at Thy birth
Merry Christmas!
