Advent

Advent

Advent is the season of the church calendar that precedes the celebration of the birth of Jesus. Followers of Jesus have been observing Advent since the 5th century in numerous ways. This Advent we will focus on four words that describe the season: hope, peace, joy, and love. Each of these words is symbolized through the lighting of a candle in our Advent wreaths. Advent celebrates the arrival of the King and anticipates his return. It's a season of waiting. But waiting is not wasted time. It is sacred space to worship the One who was, is, and is to come.
