Second Sunday of Advent

The Advent wreath as a whole is meant to remind us of both the immortality of our souls and God’s promise of everlasting life to us through Christ. The candles also have their own special significance. Each week a candle is lit. On the second Sunday of Advent, we light two blue candles. The first candle represents hope and is called the Prophecy Candle. The second candle represents peace and is called the Bethlehem Candle.

Join us for worship on Sunday to hear the good news of Advent as told by John the Baptizer.
