Sunday, November 16
The lights of Advent speak to us of mystery and of longing. They illuminate our homes with warmth and tenderness. The lighting of the candles of an Advent wreath helps us to piece together the story of Christmas. By the time the last candle is lit we have told the sacred story again, and it has illuminated our lives with hope and love.
Preparing for the season of Advent and Christmas is a part of the celebration of God’s gift. Each year Highland Hills hosts an Advent gathering for women. The purpose of this event is to set aside some moments for worship and reflection. It gives us the opportunity to come together and prepare our hearts for the coming of Christ.
This year the Women’s Advent Gathering is titled “Illuminated – The Story Becoming Light.” We will gather on Sunday, November 16, from 12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. in the Great Room. The afternoon will include lunch. The cost will be $5 and reservations are required. You can make your reservation by calling the church office or signing your name to one of the sign-up lists located around the church.
