Advent 2021

Advent is the time we look forward to the celebration of Christ’s birth. This year, Advent begins on Sunday, November 28.

The season of ADVENT is a time of waiting and anticipation. Our hearts are filled with expectant joy as we celebrate the coming of Messiah. The Advent wreath helps us countdown the Sundays until Christmas with the lighting of a purple or rose colored candle each Sunday.  The lighting of the CHRIST CANDLE on Christmas Eve culminates our time of waiting. Our hearts are ready to burst with celebration as we proclaim that the Word is made flesh, Jesus is here!  On Christmas day the celebration begins and we move into the historical twelve days of Christmas or CHRISTMASTIDE. The waiting is over. The preparations are done. It is time to start the party. 
This Advent season our Redland Advent video devotions will follow the theme of Pastor Mark's sermon series on Christmas Through The Eyes. . .  Each week, one of the pastoral staff will give a devotional talking about Christmas Through Their Eyes.

Glory to God in the highest!
