Below is our pastor’s article for the December 2019 newsletter:

Christmas is coming! It is less than a month away. Thanksgiving
is barely over and we are now into Advent. The word “Advent” is
derived from the Latin word “Adventus”, which means “coming”.
Each year we celebrate Jesus’ “coming” in the past, present and
We have created sacred space in the sanctuary. There are
symbols of the season everywhere. On the doors and windows
are the circular evergreen wreaths which symbolize everlasting
life. There are candles and white lights on the trees which
remind us of the light of Christ. Our trees are decorated with
many symbols of the Trinity, God the Father, Christ the Son, and
the Holy Spirit. The colors of white and gold symbolize purity
and majesty.
This year we are going on a journey through Advent of Peace,
Hope, Joy, Trust and Love. Like little children, most of us get
antsy for our trip to end. And we echo their impatient words,
“Are we there yet?” But perhaps as we look forward to what is to
come, we can find new ways to fulfill God’s will in the present.
We will end our Advent journey with a special service on Christmas
Eve at 4PM. I hope to see you all there.
Your sister in Christ,
Pastor Sharon
