Advent is the beginning of the new church year. It is a time of hopeful waiting for Christ’s presence in the world. The challenge is to balance the messages of the commercialism of Christmas with the one of expectant love and hope of Christ’s presence. The Advent wreath and the lighting of the Advent candle(s) each week are a symbol of Christ’s light that overcomes darkness.
Lighting the Advent Candle this Sunday morning are the following:
8:30 AM Jim & Carolyn Brueggemann
11:00 AM David & Tina Brollier
