Advent Calendar

Our Advent theme for 2015 is The Story of Christ from Around the World. We will hear stories of Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love from other countries. In addition, the artwork on the front of the worship folders will be representative of the theme, as well as the abstract artwork opposite the Advent wreath and the silhouette on the pulpit. We will continue to use the color of Advent blue. The blue of Advent is meant to inspire the hope, expectation, and anticipation of the coming of the Christ child. Symbolically, it encourages us to keep watch for the promised light of Christ: the one who changes night into day, darkness into light, and enriches our lives with hope, peace, joy, and love.
