The Advent season begins November 27th. Celebrate the first Sunday of Advent, November 27th by making an Advent Arrangement for your home. This activity is for all ages and will take place between services at 10:15 am in the Fellowship Hall. Each family will design their own arrangement complete with LED candle to take home and enjoy in the weeks before Christmas. An Advent Devotion booklet will also be provided. Please let Martha R. know by November 20th if you would like to participate so there are enough supplies (firstname.lastname@example.org). Celebrate the days upcoming to Jesus’ birth and the meaning of Advent with a hand-made arrangement to teach and remind us of the beauty of this season.
