Welcome to The Season of Advent!

 
We welcome you to the season of Advent.  This is a time when Christians confess and proclaim that … “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us” (John 1:14).
 
This is the great message of the Incarnation, that Jesus Christ was born into human history in the fullness of time for the salvation of the world.
 
This is what we seek to celebrate, to proclaim, and to manifest to all peoples.  That the Incarnate God, the long awaited Messiah has come to bring Grace and Full Salvation to our world, in our Time!
 
                          The First Sunday:  December 2, 2018 
We celebrate and light the first candle as a symbol of Expectation.  The time dedicated to an eager anticipation and expectation of the birth of Jesus. Long, long ago the prophets longed for the birth of Jesus.
 
 
                                 
 
 
                               The Second Sunday:  December 9, 2018 
We celebrate and light the second candle as a symbol of Proclamation. Preparation for the coming of our Lord at Christmas, for the coming of the Lord into our hearts, and for the coming of our Lord at the end of history.  Hear what Isaiah says to us: “Prepare the way of the LORD; Make straight in the desert a highway for our God” (Isa. 40:3)
