Veritas Gathered: Preparing for Sunday – December 14th, 2014
This week we are starting our Advent series leading up to Christmas! The sermon text for this week is John 1:1-18 . Jesus is the Word become flesh and we will be going through the opening of John to start our advent series. Please join us!
L: Long ago, the coming birth of our Savior Jesus was foretold to a world, who like us now, was consumed by chaos and sin:
C: The people who walk in darkness will see a great light. For those who live in a land of deep darkness, a light will shine.
L: And even today, above the clamor of our darkness and sin, the Word of truth and light resounds. Over nations enshrouded in despair His justice dawns.
C: For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
—Based on Isaiah 9:1-2, 6
Check out this list of some of the songs we will be singing together this week:
- “O Come O Come Emmanuel” – A powerful song longing for the coming of Jesus
- “You Are the Living Word” – A song that speaks of the glory of Jesus and the many names that magnify His holiness
- “Joy to the World” – A joyful song celebrating the arrival of Christ
Even though our arrangements might be slightly different, listen through these songs and see the great truths that they speak about our God and then come prepared to sing them out loudly and joyfully as a gathered church.
