Hymns: 66; 59:1, 5-6; LSB 575 (alt. TLH 370); 51
Pre-Service Prayer:

O Lord God, the God of mercy and truth, as I enter into Your presence for worship on this first Sunday in a new Advent Season, open my heart to the instruction of Your Word.  Fill me with a knowledge of Your truths and help me apply them properly in my life, so that my words and actions might always honor You and bring blessing to those whose lives I touch.  Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 85

First Reading: 

Psalm 100

As “His people and the sheep of His pasture” we are urged to “make a joyful shout to the LORD!”  As we begin a new church year may the Spirit fill our hearts with joy and gladness as we contemplate God’s eternal goodness and mercy!

Second Reading: 

John 17:3

In Jesus’ High Priestly prayer He reminds us that eternal life is a gift given to those who know the heavenly Father and Jesus, whom He sent to be our Savior.
