Advent, or the season of preparation for the coming of Christ Jesus, begins early this year on Sunday, November 29. The Advent wreath is a symbol of watchfulness and increasing joy as we anticipate Jesus’ birth. The wreath’s circular shape symbolizes eternity, or life without end. The candles remind us that Jesus is the Light of the World — he brought light and life to a dark world (see John 1:4-5). On each of the four Sundays of Advent, we light a new candle. As the light grows, so do our hope and joy.  Sermons throughout Advent will be based on "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens.

Below are some other events that will prepare us for Christmas:
