Small groups may gather in homes and set an atmosphere where you will feel safe and comfortable to open your hearts to this cherished time of preparation. Traditionally, this event involves candlelight and gorgeously decorated Christmas-themed tables – please consider doing the same from the safety of your home.  We encourage you to set aside some time for yourself during the busiest of seasons and join us on an Advent journey.
