Women's Ministry Advent Brunch

Posted: 11/10/2020
The word advent stems from a Latin word that means “coming” or “arrival.”  The season of Advent re-centers our hearts and minds both on the anticipation of Christ’s birth and on the expectation of Christ’s return. In the early 1800s, Christians began the tradition of displaying an Advent wreath to help them remain focused on the purpose of this season. They would light four candles nestled around the wreath, one on each Sunday leading up to Christmas, and we still continue that tradition today.  What does each candle represent?  How do they move us forward in anticipation of Christ’s birth? 
 
Please join us for the Women’s Ministry Advent Brunch where we will take a deep dive into each Advent candle’s meaning and uncover the hope this season brings.
