SEASONS OF THE CHURCH YEAR

Join us as we celebrate each season together

 

 

Did you know about ... Advent

 

Advent is the first season in the church year, comprising the four weeks before Christmas. The word “Advent” comes from the Latin, “to come,” and the church has observed Advent as weeks of preparation since the fifth century with themes of watchfulness, preparation, and hope infusing this season. Together we both anticipate the celebration of God’s coming in the form of the Christ child and the final coming of Christ in the time to come. Blue or purple is the appointed color for the season. Lutheran churches observe Advent in numerous ways. Most light the advent wreath during the four weeks of Advent, adding one new candle each week.

 

Bible verses for this time: Isaiah 7:14, Isaiah 40:3-5, Isaiah 11:1-5, John 1:14, Luke 1:26-38, Matthew 1:18-23, Luke 2:4-7, Isaiah 9:6

 

 



Prayer Practice:

Lord God,

You have called your servants to ventures of which we cannot see the ending, by paths as yet untrodden, through perils unknown.

Give us faith to go out with good courage, not knowing where we go, but only that your hand is leading us and your love supporting us; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen
