  • Adorning God's House for Advent

    Our Purpose for Gathering

    Pastor: Today we come together to prepare for the birthday of a King.


    People: Today we make ready our welcome for God's only Son, Jesus of Nazareth.


    Pastor: We begin this special and holy season of Advent, the season of going toward the birth of Christ.


    People: As we renew the special meaning of the Advent season, let us clear our minds and open our hearts to the coming of the Lord.


    Pastor: Let us also honor his birth by adorning our church for the coming of our King.


    People: Let our songs and symbols represent our anticipation of Christ's coming.


    All: For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.


    Symbols of the Chrismon Tree

    The name "Chrismon" is a contracted form of “Christ's monogram," a decorative form of monogram and other symbols related to the person and work of Christ. A Chrismon tree may stand in the sanctuary as an alternative to the secular form of a Christmas tree. The Chrismon symbols speak to us of the person and work of our Savior, Jesus Christ. This year, our children have created the symbols and will be hanging them on the  tree as they are explained.
