Advent. Queen Anne. Emmanuel.

Advent 2011 has arrived. We are rapidly moving toward the second Sunday in this season of waiting, anticipation, and preparation.

To mark Advent, Queen Anne has made some changes to our space and in how we mark time. We join with other Christians in decorating our space predominantly in blue (alternately, purple). Our Advent wreath is up and we are marking the weeks before Christmas by lighting candles to light our way to the birth of the Christ-child.

Even though some greens have made it to the exterior of the building, on December 10, you are invited to the “hanging of the greens” inside of the sanctuary. Breakfast begins at 9:00 AM with decorating and blessing of the space following the meal.

On December 16, we will decorate Christmas cookies and sing carols. Join us at 6:30 PM.

On Christmas Eve at 10:30 PM, we pray to and sing for the birth of the Christ-child. The service will include Holy Communion and candle lighting.

On Christmas Day, we will celebrate the birth of Emmanuel God with Us – God’s Holy Word come into flesh – with more Christmas carols, readings from poetry as well as scripture, and a little hot chocolate! Worship is at 10:00 AM. We would love to see you.

Looking for us?
We are on the corner of Garfield and 5th Ave W on Queen Anne.
