Advent Season is the season of waiting and preparing for Christ. It begins on the 4th Sunday before Christmas, this year on November 27th.  Unique to Advent is the advent wreath and candles, where each Sunday is a countdown not by days, but weeks in lighting one, two ... or all four candles to the coming of Christ as experienced at Christmas.  All are welcomed to count with us and prepare for the experience of Christ in our lives, with great celebration and desire.
