Advent begins Nov. 29

blue candlesTomorrow (Sunday, Nov. 29) we start our Advent celebration with worship and dinner at Gallaghers’ starting at 4 pm.

Advent is the time we celebrate a new beginning, remembering how God came into the world as Jesus Christ to free and heal and save all of us. This Advent we’re focusing on “the Big Story,” the Good News that Jesus brought to us. Our reading for tomorrow is Luke 4:14-30 where Jesus announces his mission to the people of his hometown, and gets a surprising reaction.

Tomorrow we’ll light that first Advent candle, and we’ll have an Advent calendar for each family to use throughout the season. We’ll also provide some ideas for marking this season in your family. We really hope that you’ll join us as we look forward to a new season and a new year. We’re looking forward to being together to prepare to receive again the gift of Christ at Christmas.
