Observing the Season of Advent in Our Sunday Traditional Services
The season of Advent marks the beginning of the liturgical year and a time of reflection and preparation for the celebration of Christ's birth at Christmas. Our 9 am and 11:15 am traditional worship services will observe Advent in special ways.
A wreath with candles representing each Sunday in Advent is placed next to the altar. We begin our traditional services in the Church with the singing of O Come, O Come Emmanuel and the Lighting of the Advent Wreath. Each Sunday, we welcome one of our young families at each of our services who will light the wreath.
There will be one traditional Advent service at 9 am in the Chapel on Sunday, December 24 - Christmas Eve. The fourth Advent candle, a purple candle representing Love, will be pre-lit.
