Do Not Be Afraid Advent Worship Liturgy Set
Note: This is a digital product. No physical product will be shipped to you.
Our Do Not Be Afraid Advent Worship Liturgy Set includes nearly 100 prayers and litanies to assist with your Advent worship planning. We know how daunting it can be to prepare for all of the Advent and Christmas services during such a busy season in the church and the world, and one of our goals at Illustrated Ministry is always to make your jobs easier. We hope these prayers and litanies will help do just that.
For each of the four Sundays of Advent, as well as a Candlelight Service and a Children and Families Service, we provide you with the following:
- Call to Worship
- Opening Prayer
- Passing of the Peace
- Advent Candle Lighting
- General Prayer
- Prayer of Confession
- Assurance of Pardon
- Prayer of Illumination
- Prayers of the People
- Prayer for the Offering
- Communion (not included in the Candlelight Service, substituted hymn suggestions for the Communion Liturgy)
- Charge and Benediction
These Advent and Christmas liturgies are written to connect with An Illustrated Advent for Families: Do Not Be Afraid and our Do Not Be Afraid Advent Devotional (both the Illustrated and Text-only editions) for a fully Do Not Be Afraid-themed Advent. At the same time, these liturgies can be used by themselves, apart from the other materials.
About the Theme
The inspiration for our theme comes from the angels’ message in the first two chapters of the Gospel of Luke: “Do not be afraid!” This phrase is an instruction God gave to God’s people throughout their history, and it’s a message God continues to give to us today. This Advent, we invite you to explore what it looks like to hold hope when life feels really uncertain, to bring peace in the face of fear, to practice joy when everything seems burdensome, and to choose love, when sometimes, it’s just really hard.
