Advent Day of Prayer – Nov. 28

In the quiet of the sanctuary
it is our hope
that you will reconnect
with the wonder of the Advent season.

The Advent Day of Prayer is held each year on the Saturday before the first Sunday in Advent – this year on November 27, from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm. You are invited to come at any time during the day to pray and to have quiet time of spiritual preparation for Advent. “Stations of the Nativity” will be available to guide you if you wish.

The stations will begin on the left as you enter the sanctuary and each station will be marked by a candle. At each you will find pictures, scriptures, meditations and prayers. The familiar story of events surrounding the birth of Jesus will unfold as you travel from station to station.
