It’s finally here!
That special time when we welcome the Christ Child into our homes and our hearts!
Before you worship virtually, we invite you to make space in your home for Emmanuel, God-with-us. Find a sacred gathering space in your home where you can prepare for worship:
Layout a white cloth.
Add a white Christ candle to remind us that Christ is the Light of the world, even in the darkest times. Gather individual candles for each person in your home.
Add a star as a reminder of Christ’s guiding presence in our lives, this day and always.
Add a cross to remind us that we are born anew through Christ’s incarnation, ministry, death, and resurrection, and we are to work toward the coming Kingdom.
And when we sing Silent Night, Holy Night, share the light of Christ with one another. As the warm glow of the light is shared, we are reminded to share God’s love with the whole world. We are also reminded that though we are apart, God’s love holds us together.
Be ready to lift your voice in song and prayer. And may you experience the hope, peace, joy, and love of Christmas as we worship the Word who became flesh and dwelt among us!
