The Season of Advent

Advent marks the beginning of the Episcopalian liturgical calendar year. It welcomes us to prepare our hearts, minds and spirit for the advent or coming of birth of our Savior Jesus Christ.

The season begins with the first Sunday of Advent on November 27th followed by the second, third and fourth Sundays of Advent on Dec. 4th, 11th and 18th.

Each Sunday focuses on a different aspect of Jesus. The advent wreath with its colored candles helps of gather our focus as each candle is lit symbolizing an unfolding expectation on the first, followed by hope on the second, joy on the third and purity on the fourth Sunday of Advent.

JOIN US IN WORSHIP

Please join us in worship welcoming the Season of Advent. There will be a procession followed by the lighting of the Advent candle(s) with readings from the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament), the Epistles and Gospels to follow that help us consider this sacred time. A sermon or homily will be offered and time of greeting.

There are two service times: 8:00 and 10:30 AM

Each service has a slightly different character. The early morning service is quiet and reflective using using traditional English language. The second service incorporates music and song into worship with more contemporary language.
