Advent is the thirty days before Christmas, when we wait for the birth of Jesus. During these four weeks we mark the passing time with the lighting of a candle each week, symbolizing the Love, Peace, Joy and Hope, culminating with the Christ candle, symbolizing the arrival of Jesus.
Each Sunday during Advent we will light the candles in service each week, but we invite you to do this at home each week as well. Invite your family, neighbors, small group and/or friends to join you! We have provided you with a Candle Lighting Guide to walk you through this, complete with scriptures, readings and songs.
Printed copies of the guide are available at the Connect Center, or you may find digital copies here or on our app. May this season of Advent be a special one for you as you prepare for the coming Christ!
