ORDER OF WORSHIP

 

Welcome to Worship

 Gathering

(We gather in God’s Name and in these opening moments, let us centre our spirits on God.  Before the service, speak to God.  During the service, let God speak to you.  After the service, speak to others about the Good News.)

Theme: “Five Words That Could Change Your Christmas: Give.

The season of Advent provides many opportunities to give, not just materially, but of our very selves, as exemplified by the wise men in Scripture.
