  ADVENT

 

 

Happy New Year!

 

Advent marks the beginning of the Christian year. It is a season that celebrates the birth of the Christ child more than 2000 years ago. It also anticipates the return of the Messiah. It is a time to celebrate the light that came into the world that Christmas Day, bringing with it the gifts of hope, peace, joy and love. The world was, and continues to be in need of those precious gifts. So each year at this time we prepare ourselves to receive God’s gifts through Jesus, and to honor His grace and His mercy in doing so.

 

Each Sunday, beginning on December 3, 2017, we will light a candle that symbolizes each of these four gifts. The three purple candles in the Advent wreath represent hope, peace and love. The pink candle, lit on the third Sunday, represents God’s joy for his son and his people. Nestled among those four is a white candle, the Christ candle, that is lit on Christmas Eve. We recite the scriptures from Isaiah that foretold Jesus’ coming, and God’s promise to redeem mankind through His beloved son.

 

We at Howarth United Methodist Church invite you to join us in celebrating this most Holy season. Share with us the expectation of His arrival each Sunday at our 11:00 a.m. service. Worship with  Scripture and song and candle light service on Christmas Eve at 6:30 p.m.

Peace and Blessings!

 

Pastor Carolyn
