Greening of the Church Banner 01  Greening of the Church Banner 02


During Advent, you will see changes around the church that signify the importance of the season. An advent wreath, located near the altar, contains 3 blue candles and 1 pink candle, one lit each week as we observe the season of Advent.The pink candle is lit on the 3rd Sunday, which is known as “Gaudete” Sunday (Latin for “Rejoice”). The center Christ candle is lit on Christmas Eve as we observe the birth of our Savior.
On the last Sunday of Advent, we have our annual “Greening of the Church”. (In 2018, we will Green the Church on Saturday, December 22nd) Everyone is invited to help decorate the sanctuary with evergreens and poinsettias for Christmas. It’s a big job, but many hands make light work! Then stay to enjoy snacks and warm beverages when we’re done. Please watch the church calendar and bulletin for more information.
