Advent Festival, December 9

Advent is a time to look forward to Christmas, and it is an opportunity to reflect on the reason for the season. Advent is a time to prepare our hearts for Christ, just as we prepare our homes for Christmas. The word "advent" means coming or arrival.

This year Advent begins on Sunday, December 2. St. John’s will celebrate by Hanging of the Greens during worship. Remember to pick up your St. John’s Advent Devotional book,
available in the Narthex.

On the second Sunday of Advent, December 9, everyone is invited to St. John’s Advent Festival in Fellowship Hall, 9-10 am. We will make Advent ornaments, enjoy Wassail, and sing Christmas carols. All ages are invited. (light continental breakfast provided.)
