Hanging of the Greens

Why do we have green leaves and red berries on the Advent wreath in our Sanctuary?

poinsettia-pulpitWhy do we light candles when we prepare for Christmas?

Why do we bring Poinsettia to church?

What is the story behind Christmas trees? Why do we decorate them with lights? What are Chrismons?

On Sunday, November 27th, we will share these stories and sing familiar carols while we place these and other decorations in our sanctuary. We will also receive a visit from Saint Nicholas. No not the man in the red suit from the mall, but the Bishop of Myra.
