Celebrating Advent

Saturday, Nov. 19, 9:00 AM

The word “advent” stems from the Latin noun adventus meaning “a coming, approach or arrival.” Advent begins the Western church calendar year, a season of fresh beginnings tied into an ancient and ever moving story: Jesus’ story. The advent of God to man is a story that encompasses our past, our present, and our future and reminds us what God has done, what He is doing and what He has promised to do. In this practical workshop, you’ll come to understand how the season of Advent can inform and invigorate your celebration of the Christmas tradition.
