The four-week season of Advent starts on Sunday November 27th & it marks the beginning of the new church year, preparing the people of God for the celebrations of Christmas & Epiphany. Advent means “coming” & its mood is that of longing, expectation & waiting. The color purple is used because of its association with repentance, preparation & sacrifice.
Appropriately during this time, the church remembers Jesus’ first coming & anticipates his coming again. This world is broken, & so we yearn for Jesus to come back as our King and to make all things new. The cry of Advent is the cry of those who have experienced the tyranny of injustice in a world under the curse of sin. It is the cry from those who still have hope of deliverance because they believe in a God who hears the cries of the oppressed and delivers them.
We have lots of plans, events, activities, & resources available to help us enter in & more fully engage the Advent season & we hope you'll join us in doing so. For all things Advent CLICK HERE
