First Sunday of Advent

First Sunday in Advent

The word Advent means coming. Make preparations with the season of Advent beginning Sunday, Dec. 1. Worship with us at 8:15 or 10:45 a.m., learn about The Mythic Power of Christmas during our 9:30 Learn Hour, and participate in our Reverse Advent Calendar of daily food donations by picking up a copy of the list of needed items in the parish narthex.

About Advent

The three Advents of our Lord:  He Came, He Comes, He Will Come

We wait for the coming of Christmas, of course, but Christians have traditionally seen this season as much more than that. Advent bridges the past and the future and brings them into the present. The Scripture prophecies and passages we hear in this season focus on the Christ who was, who is, and who is to come. Christ is seen not only as the child of Mary, not only as the crucified and resurrected Lord, not only as the fulfillment of all things, but also as an active presence here and now. Christ stirs power from the past and hope from the future to begin his active reign in the present, which begins in the hearts of those who follow Him.
