Join us 6 December for a free online Advent worship service with special music, including participation from many locations.
The event will open with Christmas carols from Mexico, the Asia field, and Zambia. The three members of the First Presidency will welcome viewers. After scripture from the Gospel of Luke, Ron Harmon Jr. will offer a Prayer of Invitation and Anticipation.
Apostle Mareva Arnaud Tchong from French Polynesia will deliver the homily.
While most of the event will be played from a recording, the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper will be live. The invitation will be presented simultaneously in English (First Presidency), Spanish (Apostle Carlos Enrique Mejia), and French (Apostle Bunda Chibwe).
Members will answer "Where do you see (Joy/Hope/Love/Peace) Being Born Today?," with an opportunity for social media responses from viewers. The Disciples' Generous Response will come from Andrew Fox, field bishop of Eurasia Mission Field.
Prayers for Peace come next, followed by an international children's choir performing CCS #420, "Star-Child."
Grammy-nominated Organist-in-Residence Jan Kraybill will perform:
