banner-pic-for-light-the-candles

Below is an Advent wreath liturgy written for a Christmas Eve family/early service using Isaiah 9:2-7.  It gives children and adults alike a chance to shout in church and celebrate the birth of the Christ-child.  Fun, simple and meaningful.


One: The people walking in darkness have seen a great light.

RESPONSE: [SHOUT] Light the candle!!

One: [LIGHT PURPLE CANDLE #1]

A light has shined on those living in deep darkness.

RESPONSE: Light the candle!!

One: [LIGHT PURPLE CANDLE #2]

You have made the nation great; you have increased its joy.

RESPONSE: Light the candle!!

One: [LIGHT THE PINK CANDLE]

A child is born to us, a son is given to us, and authority will be on his shoulders.

RESPONSE: Light the candle!!

One: [LIGHT PURPLE CANDLE #3]

He will be named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

RESPONSE: Light the candle!!

One: [LIGHT THE CHRIST CANDLE]

There will be vast authority and endless peace for David’s throne and for his kingdom, establishing and sustaining it with justice and righteousness now and forever.
