First Sunday in Advent

Holly by the front door. Parishioners are asked to please not pick holiday berries from the bush, it might cause winter dieback. If you need berries for decorations, Sabra has some at her house.

In addition to Advent, we also celebrated St. Andrew, with some parishioners wearing plaid or tartan, and Rich Corning piping us into church.

The children gather around the wreath for the candle lighting and Collect for the First Sunday in Advent.

Then they went downstairs to make their own wreaths. They will soon be working to expand our creche, which is getting some new animals and other figures.

The Sox Box is in place for your donations of new mittens, hats, gloves, scarves, and of course, sox, to be distrubuted this winter for those in need.
