Candlelight Event In Preparation for the Glorious Birth of Our Lord (aka Advent by Candlelight)
Candlelight Event (aka Advent by Candlelight) is an event to help women focus on Christ during the busy holiday season before Christmas. This is an event for women (adults, young adults) held sometime during the season of the Birth of Our Lord on a weekday typically 7 -8:30 pm, anytime from mid-November to the 1st week of December but can be done prior to the Lenten season. This is a time for us to prepare our hearts for Jesus’ coming. We want our focus to be on Jesus throughout this season, but all too often it seems we get caught up with the preparations in our homes, churches or communities.We have cleaning, decorating, shopping, baking and events that take up our time, in addition to all the normal daily routines and schedules.While these are all fun and good ways to prepare for our Christmas celebrations, we can easily lose our focus during the busyness. Candlelight Event is an opportunity for women to set aside all of those preparations and focus our hearts and minds again on Jesus.It is a beautiful evening filled with talk, prayer, scripture, songs of praise and fellowship. There are certainly preparations to be done, but we can do them to the glory of our Lord while preparing for his coming! Enjoy the evening when it arrives as you encourage your sisters in Christ with the Word of God! This beautiful evening of reflection brings women together to focus on the true meaning of this Blessed Season. During the night you will hear a talk to prepare a place in our hearts for the Christ child, share a warm drink and dessert or snack with friends, and enjoy a festive spirit! Enjoy creating a beautiful ambiance, but know that the power is in the message of the Gospel. You will be given the opportunity to be the hostess of your friends on your table. Please check guidelines below to understand your role in this beautiful event.
