    The Christmas Eve Greeting Bryan Moore

    May the light of the Christ Child be with you.

    And also with you.

    The Responsive Call to Worship Bryan Moore On this holy night,

    we come, joining the shepherds

    who are stunned by wonder.

    On this most silent night,

    we come, our hopes and dreams

    joining those of Mary and Joseph.

    On this night of carols and candlelight,

    we come, our glad songs joining

    with the choirs of angels over us. - written by Rev. Thom Shuman

    Advent Candle Song Let There Be Peace on Earth - Miller

    Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me; let there be peace on earth,

    the peace that was meant to be. With God as our Father, brothers all are we.

    Let me walk with my brother in perfect harmony.

    Let peace begin with me; let this be the moment now. With every step I take,

    let this be my solemn vow: to take each moment and live each moment in peace eternally.

    Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me.

    A Responsive Prayer for the Light of Christmas Carolyn Helms

    Glory to God in the highest heaven

    and peace on earth on whom God’s favor rests. (Luke 2:14)

    In tender compassion for all people

    God’s eternal light shines in the darkness.

    And the darkness of this world

    cannot overcome the light. (John 1:5, 14)

    To us a child is born, to us a Son is given.

    All authority rests upon His shoulder.

    And His name shall be called

    Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,

    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6)

    The Word that was from the beginning

    in the miracle and mystery of Christmas

    became flesh and dwelt among us. (John 1:1)

    And we have seen His glory,

    Glory as the only Son,

    full of grace and truth. (John 1:14)

    Instrumental Meditation Coventry Carol - Arr. Larson Polly Lundberg, Piano

    Christmas Devotion David Helms

    Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,

    The little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head;

    The stars in the sky looked down where He lay,

    The little Lord Jesus, asleep on the hay.

    The cattle are lowing, the Baby awakes,

    But little Lord Jesus no crying He makes;

    I love Thee, Lord Jesus! Look down from the sky,

    And stay by my cradle till morning is nigh.

    (Tom Allen)

    Meditation and Carol Silent Night STILLE NACHT

    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,

    Wondrous star, lend thy light;

    With angels let us sing

    Alleluia to our King;

    Christ the Savior is born.

    Christ the Savior is born.

    The Benediction Tom Allen

    As you leave, remember that when the fullness of time had come,

    God sent His son, born of a woman, so we might receive adoption as children of God.
