Advent Prayer Vigil

December 14 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

Our congregation sets aside one day in Advent each year to prayerfully reflect on God’s self-giving in Christ and await the advent (“coming”) of God in Jesus Christ into our lives and world. This year, that day is Wednesday, Dec. 14, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. in the Little Chapel (adjacent to the Centennial Room).

You are welcome to come anytime during the day and remain in prayer as long as you want. Resources will be available for you to use as you pray, or you can pray in your own way. If you’d like to sign up for a 30-minute slot, you can do so here.  It is not necessary to sign up; it is an option for those who would like to do so.

If you are unable to be present in the Little Chapel on the 14th, you are invited to take a few minutes during the day wherever you are to open yourself to the grace and presence of God who comes in Jesus.

The Advent Prayer Vigil reminds us that we are on the Advent journey together.  We are still seeking the blessings of this season: hope, peace, joy, and love – not only for ourselves, but for all.
