Call to Worship

All the ends of the earth

have seen the salvation of our God. Alleluia!

Shout to the Lord, all the earth. Alleluia!

O Christ, splendor of God’s eternal glory,

the mighty Word, sustaining the universe:

Renew our lives by your presence.

Lord, have mercy.

O Christ, born into the world in the fullness of time for the liberation of all creation:

Release all into your promised freedom.

Lord, have mercy.

O Christ, begotten of the Father before all time,

born in a stable at Bethlehem:

May your church be a sign of hope and joy.

Lord, have mercy.

O Christ, truly God and truly human,

born to a people in fulfillment of their expectations:

Fulfill our desires in you.

Lord, have mercy.

O Christ, born of the virgin Mary,

child of wonder and splendor,

Mighty God of all ages, Prince of Peace:

May the whole world live in peace and justice.

Lord, have mercy.

A Message from ABCNJ

ABCNJ continues to proclaim the gospel in New Jersey and throughout the world. This month two ABCNJ leaders traveled to help bridge a cultural divide which has stranded many Haitian refugees in Tijuana, Mexico. We responded to the call for emergency aid to our Haitian brothers and sisters after the devastation of Hurricane Matthew. And Camp Lebanon continues to introduce young people to Jesus Christ.

As the year comes to an end, our region family is encouraging everyone to consider making a “friends of ABCNJ” donation to our ongoing work.
