Advent and Christmastide Booklet

Advent and Christmastide Booklet

Slow down. Quiet. It’s Advent.
Advent is here. We joyfully await the fulfillment of God in the birth of Jesus Christ. Thank you for joining us for these 27 days to make room for Jesus in your heart.

It’s time to slow down and to watch for miracles. It’s time to take some time for quiet and wait for the birth of the Messiah. It’s time to wonder at the unfailing light and love of God.

This booklet lists or links to a wide variety of ways to explore Advent and provides opportunities to worship at home, either by yourself or with your friends and family. We invite you to prepare a space in your home to mark these days and celebrate the coming of Jesus.

The Episcopal Churches of Shenandoah County are a wonderful place to experience this season of expectant hope as we await the Christ child. As we prepare for Christmastide, we invite you to any of our services celebrating the birth of our Lord.

We hope this booklet, and the Advent Calendar that is available in our two churches, will be a companion for your journey during this sacred season of our liturgical church year.

Please check our website for updates as we may have changes due to changing COVID-19 infection rates.
