  • ~Welcome~
  • Advent Confession and Forgiveness P: In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. All: Amen P: The Lord of Advent tells us to be watchful for his coming, keeping our lamps lighted, and our hearts clean. All: Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. P: Let us confess to the Lord. (time for silent reflection)
  • P: Gracious God… All: We prepare our hearts for the coming of Your Son, confessing our sins of omission and commission, confessing our lure into a world that knows not the Christ of our preparations. Forgive our sins, cleanse our hearts, and keep us faithful and focused on the promised coming of Your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
  • P: God sent Jesus, to show infinite love and forgiveness for all. Our sins are forgiven in the holy name of Christ who came and will come again. All: Amen.
  • Oh Little Town of Bethlehem ELW #279
  • O little town of Bethlehem, How still we see thee lie; Above thy deep and dreamless sleep The silent stars go by.
  • Yet in thy dark streets shineth The everlasting light; The hopes and fears of all the years Are met in thee tonight.
  • For Christ is born of Mary; And gathered all above, While mortals sleep the angels keep Their watch of wond'ring love.
  • O morning stars together Proclaim the holy birth; And praises sing to God the king, And peace to all the earth.
  • How silent, how silently The wondrous gift is giv'n! So God imparts to human hearts The blessings of his heav'n.
  • No ear may hear his coming, But in this world of sin, Where meek souls will receive him still, The dear Christ enters in.
  • O holy Child of Bethlehem, Descend to us, we pray; Cast out our sin and enter in, Be born in us today.
  • We hear the Christmas angels The great glad tidings tell; O come to us, abide with us, Our Lord, Emmanuel.
  • LIGHTING OF THE ADVENT CANDLE P: The first candle of Advent is the light of Hope. All: Our hope is in God, and in God’s son Jesus Christ. He is the one appointed by God to be judge of all things. He is the one through whom God has promised to save and redeem all people.
  • P: We light this candle today to remind us that God is our hope. All: To remember that God is the only hope of the world. We thank God for the promises He has made to us and for the light Christ has brought into the world.

  • SCRIPTURE LESSON Isaiah 2:1-5 (p. 644 OT)
  • ! Pastor Dave Hall
  • Each Winter As The Year Grows Older ELW #252
  • Each winter as the year grows older, we each grow older too. The chill sets in a little colder; the verities we knew seem shaken and untrue.
  • When race and class cry out for treason, when sirens call for war, they over shout the voice of reason and scream till we ignore all we held dear before.
  • Yet I believe beyond believing, that life can spring from death; that growth can flower from our grieving; that we can catch our breath and turn transfixed by faith.
  • So even as the sun is turning to journey to the north, the living flame, in secret burning, can kindle on the earth and bring God’s love to birth.
  • O Child of ecstasy and sorrows, O Prince of peace and pain, brighten today’s world by tomorrow’s, renew our lives again; Lord Jesus, come and reign.
  • Baptism: Ella Amara Kartawidjaja P: In Baptism our gracious heavenly Father frees us from sin and death by joining us to the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

  • Living with Christ and in the communion of saints, we grow in faith, love and obedience to the will of God. (to Parents): Called by the Holy Spirit, trusting in the grace and love of God, do you desire to have your child baptized into Christ? PARENTS: I do.

  • and nurture her in faith and prayer, so that your child may learn to trust God, proclaim Christ through word and deed, care for others and the world God made, and work for justice and peace. Do you promise to help your child grow in the Christian faith and life? PARENTS: I do.
  • P: (to Sponsors): Sponsors, do you promise to nurture this child in the Christian faith as you are empowered by God's Spirit, and to help her live in the covenant of baptism and in communion with the church? SPONSORS: I do.
  • P: (to All): People of God, do you promise to support ELLA and pray for her in her new life in Christ? ALL: We do.
  • P: (to Parents, Sponsors): I ask you to profess your faith in Christ Jesus, reject sin, and confess the faith of the church. Do you renounce the devil and all the forces that defy God? SPONSORS/PARENTS: I renounce them.
  • P: (to Parents, Sponsors): Do you renounce the powers of this world that rebel against God? SPONSORS/PARENTS: I renounce them.
  • P: (to Parents, Sponsors): Do you renounce the ways of sin that draw you from God? SPONSORS/PARENTS: I renounce them. P: (to All) Do you believe in God the Father?
  • ALL: I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth. P: Do you believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God? ALL: I believe in Jesus Christ, God's only Son, our Lord,
  • who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven; he is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come again to judge the living and the dead.

  • We give you thanks, a God, that through water and the Holy Spirit you give your daughters and sons new birth, cleanse them from sin, and raise them to eternal life. Sustain ELLA with the gift of your Holy Spirit: the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might,
  • the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord, the spirit of joy in your presence, both now and forever. ALL: Amen
  • P: Ella Amara Kartawidjaja, child of God, you have been sealed by the Holy Spirit and marked with the cross of Christ forever. ALL: Amen
