Advent Wreath & Prayers
As you prepare throughout Advent to celebrate Christmas, you might consider creating for your home an Advent Wreath.
All you need are five candles!
Head out for a walk or to your backyard and find some greenery to add to the base to literally, spruce it up!
Did you know: Advent Wreath candles can be all white. Alternatively, they can be four red (originally, they were!).
Or if you’re lucky enough to find them, they can be three blue and one pink
(we light the pink candle on the third Sunday of Advent).
The Christ Candle for Christmas is usually white and sits in the middle of the wreath.
I’m including prayers and reflection you can use each week as you light your candles.

    Volunteers Required!

    Protocols for the safety and health of all of our members is our highest priority.
    One of the key protocols includes sanitizing the sanctuary following every gathering.
    These new protocols mean we are in need of volunteers!
    Please contact the office if you are able to help out.
