The Season Of Advent
Advent means “coming”, from the Latin word adventus.  It is a time of the church calendar that is a season fo expectantly preparing to celebrate the first coming of Jesus, while eagerly awaiting His second coming.  In these weeks leading up to Christmas we will look at the prophecy found in Isaiah about a child that would be born to be called “Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”  
Here is a devotional put together by the ECC Covenant Companion Magazine:  Advent Devotional
Christmas Eve Candlelight Service
5pm in the Sanctuary
This will be a wonderful time to celebrate the birth of Jesus with the singing of Christmas carols and an inspirational message.  There will be a special time for kids and they will be given an activity bag to use during the service.  The service will last about an hour.
