We’re already thinking about Advent, and how to strengthen everyone’s in-home experience of the 4 weeks before and the 12 days of Christmas.
Part of this is providing every family with an Advent Candleholder. The idea is that we will decorate them in the fall (with each artist signing their creation on the underside). They will be part of the Advent box we send every family in church. You will receive an Advent Candleholder made for you by someone else in church.
We hope to have 4 or 5 decorated examples for you in next week’s E-pistle. Michael and Janice have about 120 of the 150 wooden boards made that we need. They should be available at church on Sept. 14. We are asking people to come by and pick them up (we can arrange for contactless hand-offs). People might also want to pick up and deliver for others. You may take one to decorate, or more (as we assume that not everyone will be able to do one; and we need to get 150 done! They should be returned to church by mid-October. The Advent Box needs to be in the mail by the second week in November.
