Welcome & Announcements:
Call to Worship:
Christ Jesus, being in very nature God did not consider equality with God
something to be used to his own advantage;
rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.
Hail the incarnate Deity, Jesus, our Immanuel.
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given. . . .
He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever.
Hail the heaven-born Prince of Peace!
Hail the Sun of Righteousness!
I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever.
Every day I will praise you and extol your name for ever and ever.
Glory to the newborn King.
—Philippians 2:5–7; Isaiah 9:6–7; Psalm 145:1–2
