THE CANDLE OF LOVE
On the fourth Sunday of Advent, we light the candle of Love. This candle is also referred to as the Angel’s Candle. As we light this flame, we are reminded of the heavenly hosts that proclaimed Christ’s arrival. This candle is also purple, reminding us that it was a King’s birth the angels were announcing.
CHRISTMAS JOY OFFERING
The purple Christmas Joy Offering envelopes are available for anyone who feels called to make a contribution to this fund. Donations will be forwarded to the Presbytery to be used to support retired ministers and their families and for racial and ethnic religious programs at colleges.
If you are going to place a poinsettia in the Sanctuary for the congregation to enjoy during the Christmas season, please let the church office know. A list of all of the people being honored and/or remembered by poinsettias will be printed in the worship bulletin. Small slips for the information are available in the pew racks.
