Prelude – For Unto Us a Child Is Born, Music by Matthew Armstrong

Lighting the Advent Wreath

Tonight we celebrate the one moment, the one birth, and the one life that forever changes the world!

O come, O come, Emmanuel.

Because you came to us, we have experienced the ultimate hope to combat even the darkest moments.

O come, O come, Emmanuel.

Because you came to us, we have seen the fullness of love to the highest degree.

O come, O come, Emmanuel.

Because you came to us, we have seen the face of peace in its purest form.

O come, O come, Emmanuel.

Tonight, we celebrate your birth that unleashes hope, love, peace, and joy into the world from now until the day of your return.

O come, O come, Emmanuel.
