Advent – A Season of Preparation and Giving

Special music, a focus on the themes of the 200-year-old hymn, “Silent Night,” and the lighting of the Advent wreath will mark our Advent observance this year.  It is a season that can overtake us with busyness but which actually invites us to stop and prepare our hearts anew for the birth of Christ. It is a season that calls us to serve others and reach out with compassion and love.
