Gathering Prayer for this Advent Season:

Loving God, Creator of Light, whose Word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path, open our hearts and minds by the power of your Holy Spirit, that we may receive what you have revealed, and follow your direction obediently. Amen.

Prayer of Confession for this Advent Season:

Gracious God, into the darkness of this troubled world you were born among us as true light. Forgive us, for when we ignore your light. Deliver us, when from fear we avoid your light. Heal us, so we might shine your light of love, hope and peace to the world, through Jesus Christ, our Lord, we pray. Amen.

*Please note that Pastor Dan and Pastor Courtney do not always preach from manuscript, therefore the text of sermons are not always available.
