Welcome to an Overview of UIM Advent/Christmas Worship

“Every Knee Shall Bow!”

Through the wisdom and power of God’s Word, this UIM Advent/Christmas Worship Series equips congregations to reach out and welcome all people created and loved by God to Christ so that at the sound of His name every knee will bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that He is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.  (Philippians 2:10-11)." Each week focuses on one name of Jesus and how to share Jesus’ name, not through our own power but through the power of God’s Holy Spirit, specifically and intentionally to welcome all God’s Children to Christ, the theme and mission of this UIM Year.


We have much to offer as we reach out to

welcome all people in the name of Jesus,

which each service in this Series helps us to do.


Week 1:     Comfort in the Wonderful Name of Jesus
            The world seeks comfort, the name of Jesus offers far more than just comfort.

Week 2:    Jesus, Our Counselor and Friend
            The world seeks counsel, some pay dearly to receive it. Christ paid dearly but offers it free.

Week 3:     A Mighty God Like None Other
            Only our God has made heaven and earth and  has not only promised, but delivered salvation for all mankind.

Week 4:     Lasting Love From Our Everlasting Father
            In a world searching for love, our God is love  and He offers love that knows no bounds and will never end.

Christmas Eve Program/Worship:     Our Valiant Prince of Peace
           Based on: Ephesians 6:13 Therefore put on the full armor of God,so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

"Our Valiant Prince of Peace" is set in a stable amidst the chaos of having a divine birth and human visitors where animals take on human personalities. A stubborn donkey is too tired to share that a Savior is born. A rooster wants to be a king, not worship the King! A humble lamb feels unworthy to be in the presence of Christ and a selfish cow named "Patience" is anything but patient about all of the amazing happenings in her stable one Holy Night. Those present will discover how to put on armor that will strengthen them to stand firm in their faith and share Christ until ever knee will bow and tongue confess He is Lord, which is the theme for the entire UIM Advent/ Christmas Worship Series this year.

Christmas Day: The Light of Our Salvation!
            Inspires and empowers us to proclaim the name of Jesus, the Light who saves, every day in every way.  Based on: Luke 8:16    No one lights a lamp and hides it in a jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, he puts it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light.

Generations who attend will be led to the Word (Christ), who became flesh and dwelt among us,

for strength of faith to share the name of Jesus through the power of God’s Spirit.

And through the Spirit’s power, never to stop sharing Christ

so that every knee will bow at the sound of His Name!
