The word advent means “arrival.” Advent traditions celebrate the first advent (the birth) of Jesus Christ. These same celebrations view the Christmas story in light of God’s larger plan of salvation, looking forward to his second advent (his return) as King.
On the first Sunday of Advent we light the candle of Hope.
Come and join us each week of December as we celebrate Advent. Our “Junior” Sunday School class will be leading us in the reading of the Advent lessons.
