CEDAR GROVE CHURCH
December 06, 2020
Reader: The second week of advent is a prayer for peace. In a world deeply divided…
ALL: CHRIST IS OUR PEACE, HE BREAKS DOWN EVERY DIVIDING WALL
Reader: In a world filled with hostility and hatred…
ALL: CHRIST IS OUR PEACE, HE TEACHES US TO LOVE OUR ENEMIES.
Reader: In a world of war, where violence never ends…
ALL: CHRIST IS OUR PEACE, HE INVITES US TO TAKE UP OUR CROSS AND FOLLOW HIM.
Reader: A shoot will grow up from a stump of Jesse; a branch will sprout from his roots.
ALL: THE LORD’S SPIRIT WILL REST UPON HIM, A SPIRIT OF WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING
Reader: Righteousness will be the belt around his hips, and faithfulness the belt around his waist.
ALL: THE WOLF WILL LIVE WITH THE LAMB, AND THE LEOPARD WILL LIE DOWN WITH THE YOUNG GOAT; AND A LITTLE CHILD WILL LEAD THEM.
Reader: They won’t harm or destroy anywhere on my holy mountain.
ALL: THE EARTH WILL SURELY BE FILLED WITH THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE LORD, JUST AS THE WATER COVERS THE SEA. LET EARTH RECEIVE HER KING!
Christmas Cards ~ The Youth group will NOT be passing out Christmas Cards this year. INSTEAD we will be sharing a Christmas Card Wall in the church family. It will cut in half and then taped to the wall for display. You are welcome to bring your card this evening and any Sunday through Advent. You are also welcome to mail your card to the church address.
