Dec. 1 Greening of the Church

Advent begins this Sunday, Dec. 1.

Our English speaking services will worship together at 10:00am in Lee Activity Center. Japanese language service will meet at 10:00am in the Sanctuary.

Advent means coming or arrival and is the four week time of year we prepare our hearts, our church and our homes with the symbols that point us toward the hope, peace, joy and love we find in the arrival of the Christ Child.

This Sunday, we will begin with worship and communion then move into a time of decorating and learning about the symbols of the season.  Decorating will take place throughout the church and includes making origami ornaments, advent calendars, banners, cards, college care packages, wreaths, garlands, decorating our Chrismon tree, and helping others through our Giving Tree. We will end by lighting the first candle of the Advent Wreath and eating lunch together.

There will be one English speaking service at 10:00am from Dec.1-Jan.5. Japanese language service will be at 10:00am Dec. 1 and 11:30am Dec.8-Jan.5
