FOR December, 2020
Out of an abundance of care and caution, the people of Resurrection Lutheran Church, Moose Pass United Methodist Church, and Seward United Methodist Church continue to bring you an online worship experience. Even when we move toward gathering together, carefully, we recognize that it will be safer for many to continue with “virtual worship.”
Today is the Second Sunday of Advent, with the theme of PEACE. Pastor Ben Bohart is providing the sermon today while Pastor Jim provides the prayers. We have several special Advent activities today. We have a lighting of the Advent candles followed by a song of response from Carolyn Roloff. Jamie and Raelene from the Lutheran VBS team are giving our children’s sermon. We have some very traditional music and one Advent song which will be sung in a round.
Here are today’s Thank Yous:
—Thank you to Nathan Drake of Reawaken Hymns. We’ll be hearing quite a bit from Nathan over Advent.
—Thank you to Edmonds Music Collective from Edmonds UMC in Washington for their version of “On Jordan’s Bank the Baptist’s Cry” to go with our Gospel passage today.
—Thank you to Jim and Jean Strathdee for their song, “Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord.”
—Thank you to Carolyn Roloff for singing “Light One Candle to Watch for Messiah”. Written by Wayne L. Wold. Copyright Fortress Press. Page 630 of the Lutheran Hymnal.
—Thank you to The Work of the People for their video “I am the Path” with a poem from Kelly Ann Hall and music from The Brilliance.
—Thank you to Joanna Harader for a Call to Worship and “Literature and Liturgy” for our Pastoral Prayer.
—Thanks, as usual, to Sue McClure for pre-worship music that is provided as a separate video upload.
Worship will be “Premiered” on the Seward/Moose Pass UMC Facebook page at 10:30 AM but will thereafter be available on the Facebook Page and our YouTube Channel. You may also find Sue McClure’s pre-worship music there.
