Fully-Scripted Worship Series
for Advent/Christmas

Scroll down to view the scriptures and synopses for each week.

The pandemic has laid bare, and widened, economic disparity locally and globally. As we enter the Advent season, how can our churches become houses where the Holy will be born anew–offering respite, sustenance and care, opening the doors ever wider to those seeking shelter from the onslaught of life? No one church can do it all, but each can do something. As we study the biblical prophets that call us to care for our neighbors and “make room in the inn,” the lonely and frightened spaces within us are filled with the light of Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love.

This worship series utilizes scriptures from the Revised Common Lectionary Year C (usable any year if you don't follow the lectionary all the time), and is designed for churches whether they are producing online, pre-recorded, live video conference, adapted or full in-person worship.
