 This Sunday - Advent 1


We will begin Sunday School November 30, Advent 1 - and instead of dividing the classes, adults and children will meet in the parish hall and do Advent activities and hear Advent stories. We'll all just get ready for Christmas together!


There are several different Advent booklets available for anyone who would like to have one for your own Advent devotions, or to read with your family. Just pick one up.


Share Your Christmas

Please pick up a yellow tag from one of the angel trees in stores in Bolivar - for OUR age group - 14-18!

(We had 93 sign ups by Wednesday and there will be more before the final sign up day, Wednesday, Dec. 3.)

We will need help on next Friday, December 5 beginning at 10:00 am to build the bags in the church.

We will need you again to do final shopping and delivery of the bags on Dec 9.

And again we need help to distribute gifts on Wednesday and Thursday Dec. 10 and 11.

PLEASE do sign up to help on one or more of these days!

If you look at the facebook page for St Albans, you will see some wonderful resources online for celebrating the season of Advent.
Some of them originate in the Eastern part of the whole church, the Orthodox Church,  which has used this period traditionally to reflect on the significance of the Incarnation.
Some are from the Western Churches including our own, which have focused both on the final coming of Christ to end human history as we know it, as a preparation for the celebration of Christmas.
