First Sunday of Advent – 9:00 a.m. Wreath Making

Advent, from the Latin word meaning “to come,” marks the beginning of a new church year.  The season of Advent is a time of hope and anticipation as we look for Christ coming into our world.  During the season of Advent, you will notice some changes in our worship.  The altar hangings and clergy vestment color for Advent is blue, symbolizing the night sky in which the star appeared to announce the birth of Jesus, and it is the color of royalty to welcome our new King.  We will also have an Advent wreath in church.  Each week, an additional candle of the wreath is lighted week as we draw closer to the light of Christmas.

We start the season of Advent with Advent wreath making from 9:00-10:15 a.m. in the multi-purpose room of the Parish Hall. Parishioners are invited to make an Advent wreath for their family to help countdown to Christmas.  Advent Wreath kits are $10 each and include wreath form, candles, candle holders, and greens.  We ask that each family make only 1 wreath.  Please join us in marking the beginning of the Advent season.  For more information contact Rev.  Amanda.
