Welcome to our Online Worship. Today is the Second Sunday of the Season of Advent. Our theme for today is "Finding Peace in Our Struggles." Our scripture is from Luke 2:8-20, the angel's announcement of the birth of Christ to the shepherds in the fields outside Bethlehem. "Peace on earth, goodwill to all people," they sang. We certainly need peace in our time, in our individual lives, our country, and the world. Jesus is our peace, the Prince of Peace. May God be blessed as we worship him today.
Call to Worship
O God, you are indeed, Emmanuel, God with us. Thank you for your presence in our world and in our lives. Come into our hearts this Advent season and give us your peace. As we worship you today, may we experience anew the power and presence of the Prince of Peace, even Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Advent Prayer for Peace
Go Tell It On the Mountain
Be people of peace. Let peace live in your heart and share the peace of Christ with all you meet. Share peace by acting out of compassion and not fear. Share peace by listening to all sides of the story. Share peace by praying for our world.
In this Advent season, we need to see, feel, and share peace.
As you go out into the wonder of God’s creations, share peace and hope of Christ with everyone you meet. Amen.
