West End United Methodist Church

Advent Wreath Dinner and Workshop 2015

Experience Advent in a way that helps us discover where God’s love in Jesus is leading!  What better way than by participating in the Annual Advent Wreath Workshop and Dinner. The whole congregation is invited to participate in this event on Sunday, November 29 from 5:30 – 7 p.m. in McWhirter Hall.  

The dinner will be potluck, so everyone is encouraged to bring a dish to share that is large enough to feed your family and a few more people. If your last name begins with A-F bring a starchy side dish or bread; G-R vegetarian entrée, vegetable side, or salad; S-Z dessert.  Meat and drinks will be provided. 

Advent is a season for preparing how to celebrate and recognize the Gift we receive through the birth of Jesus. What better way to begin our preparation than by creating an Advent wreath to use in our homes. Wreath making supplies will be provided, but each family is asked to bring greenery for decorating the wreaths. If you still have your Styrofoam wreath form from last year, please bring it and re-decorate it. This will allow us to have enough supplies for families to create a 2nd Advent wreath to take to a neighbor or a home-bound church member.

Join with your church family in an Advent worship time. Resources will be available for church families to help them experience and prepare for the gift of Christmas – a Christmas filled with expectation and openness to new possibilities.
