Bring in the Light

poinsettia-pulpitWhy do we have green leaves and red berries on our Advent wreath?

Who all was involved in bringing the Light of Life into the world?

Why 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?

Last week, November 26th, we began our preparations for Advent, hanging greenery around our building. This Sunday, December 3rd, at 10:00 a.m. we will consider all this and celebrate the Lord’s Supper.
