Advent Speaker Series 2017

Come to the Advent Speaker Series starting on Wednesday, December 6, 2017 and on every Wednesday night through Advent as together we “Prepare the Manger.” Break away from the Commercialism of Christmas to focus on the important of the season that we see in the humble manger scene. Every household will receive piece of a creche / manger set that they can keep in their home. 

 Join us in preparing for Christmas

by attending the Saint Andrew Advent Speaker Series

“Prepare the Manger”

Take a break from the over-commercialized shopping season and discover the real reason for the season.

This Advent series is being crafted for both adults and children (Kindergarten and older) and is built around the figures of the crèche/manager scene. Each talk will start with adults and children gathered together and then separate for a portion of the talk. It concludes with a joint prayer service for children and adults.

Every household (and every child) will receive pieces to the manger scene for themselves to keep and cherish the true meaning of Christmas.
