Celebrating Advent at St. Andrew’s

November 13, 2018 2 Comments Share

November 28 – December 24, 2018

Deck the Halls
November 26 – December 1
Join us as we deck the halls and get St. Andrew’s into the Christmas spirit! Instead of Black Friday, we are gathering between November 26 – December 1 to hang garland and wreaths, decorate trees, and prepare our campus to be a welcoming place for worship throughout the Christmas season. Sign up in the Connect Center or email Gina Pierce for more info, ginap@sapres.org.

Advent Devotional
December 2 – 25
To help guide St. Andrew’s on our journey toward Christmas, a devotional will be emailed each day beginning on the first Sunday of Advent, December 2, and concluding on Christmas Day. Through a mixture of prose, poetry, art, music, and spiritual practices, we hope to help you keep watch for Christ’s coming and prepare you to receive the blessing of Christmas.
