We Celebrate the Season of Advent

Ad venir, to come to or to be with; Advent, the coming of God.  Christians have been observing this season of expectation since at least the sixth century, but the anticipation that God will be with us is much older than that. Each Sunday we light a new candle and read scripture that reminds us of God's presence in our lives demonstrated through the birth of His Son, Jesus Christ.

Hang a dove on the Christmas Tree 

As part of our celebration of Advent, we invite attendees to pick up a dove ornament from the foyer and write either a prayer request or a praise on it and then hang it on the Christmas tree in the sanctuary.
