November 29 - December 24
ADVENT AT EMORY
Preparing our hearts to more deeply welcome Christ
“Almost Christmas” Advent Candle Wreath Lighting at Home
Each Sunday, November 29 to December 20 at 6-6:30pm
This Advent, we are joining together virtually in a 30-minute time of fellowship around the advent
candle wreath. Be prepared to light your candles at home and use the chat to respond to insightful questions about peace, hope, love and joy! It will be a special time to hear from each other.
Feel free to join us with or without your own Advent candle wreath. If you choose to do candles at
home, here are a couple of suggestions: You may purchase advent candles on Amazon using your
EBOL smile account or at a craft store. If you have small children at home, you may want to consider a craft project to create their own advent wreath using birthday candles. As always, please be safe whenever lighting a flame at home! A PDF of the wreath lighting scriptures, statements and prayers may be found below.
Almost Christmas: A Wesleyan Advent Experience Study
First Four Wednesdays in December at 7 pm
Join us and focus on following Christ wholeheartedly in this season. Explore what blocks us from an “altogether” love, hope, joy, and peace in our lives and in the world around us. If Wednesday nights don’t work for you, please gather friends and family virtually to study this book at another time. You may purchase Almost Christmas: A Wesleyan Advent Experience on Amazon using your EBOL smile account.
