News and Notes from Curwensville Alliance Church
Join us on Sundays at 8:00 am and at 10:45 am as we worship together.
November 29, 2015 marks the first Sunday of Advent – a time of year when we remember the birth of Jesus as we approach Christmas day. Each candle of Advent symbolizes something different around a theme. This year’s theme is Hope-full Living. Our candles represent:
1) Peaceful Living
2) Expectant Living
3) Grateful Living
4) Generous Living.
With the coming of each week we will light another candle until Christmas Eve at 7 pm, when we will light the candle that symbolizes Christ.
Plan now to be here throughout, as together, we hope for all that Christ has bought us through his advent.
