The symbol of Advent is the evergreen wreath which represents eternal life. On it are four candles,which remind us that Jesus is the light of the world. Each Sunday in worship one of our families will light a candle on our Advent wreath.
One candle is lit the first week (11/27), two candles the second(12/4), three candles the third week (12/11), and all four candles the fourth week (12/18). On Christmas Eve, the end of Advent, we will light all four candles plus the Christ Candle in the middle. Each week, the light grows brighter, and reminds us that the Light that is Christ grows stronger every year as we await his return in all his glory, on the Last Day!
