 CALL TO WORSHIP & OPENING PRAYER — Psalm 46:1-3, 7

God is our refuge and strength,
    a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,
    though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam,
    though the mountains tremble at its swelling. 
The Lord of hosts is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our fortress. 

QUIET PREPARATION — Psalm 46:10-11

Be still, and know that I am God.

Christmas Eve at Home 2020

20151224_111250

What a different year this has been! At times it has been fearful and discouraging, yet we have been so blessed throughout this year as well. Since we aren’t having our candlelight service this year, here’s a simple plan to guide you through having your own time at home.

Light a candle or two. 

Sing “O Come All Ye Faithful.” If you need music to sing along with, here’s a video for you. 

Read Luke 2:1-20

And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered.  This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria.  So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city.

Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was with child. So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:

“Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”

So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.” And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger. Now when they had seen Him, they made widely known the saying which was told them concerning this Child.  And all those who heard it marveled at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart.  Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told them.

Spend time praying, being thankful for God’s love for us, and for Jesus coming as Emmanuel – God with us.

Sing “Silent Night.”  Just your own voices would be lovely but if you need it, here’s a video to sing along with. 

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,
Son of God, love’s pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face,
With the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth, Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth.

Silent night, holy night,
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavn’ly hosts sing Alleluia!
Christ the Savior is born. Christ the Savior is born.
