Advent Wreath Making

All ages are invited to make a wreath to mark the beginning of Advent. Materials provided: we just need you! Advent wreaths serve as both a decoration and a devotional resource for you to use at home in the weeks leading up to Christmas. A new candle is lit each week as we anticipate the birth of Jesus and coming of Christ. Advent devotionals and activities for younger children will be available.
