Advent at Home

 In Featured

Advent is a meaningful time of preparation and anticipation of God with us, Emmanuel.

Like everything else in 2020, this Advent and Christmas season will look different, as we celebrate in our homes. We hope you find the resources below helpful as find ways to  pause and reflect on the gift of Jesus in our lives and in our homes.


Advent Wreaths

Each week during worship we will light a candle, which signifies the coming of hope, peace, joy, and love. Then on Christmas Eve, we light the final candle, the Christ candle, as a way of signifying that Christ has come as the light of the world. You can make this a special part of your Advent celebration by making an Advent wreath or purchasing one at a local retailer or online – we have some links provided below to get you started. You can use three purple candles, one pink candle, and the Christ candle is white. As a family you can relight the candle(s) each night at dinner and talk about how Christ is hope, peace, joy, and love. You can also light your Advent wreath during online worship as we light the Advent wreath at Prince of Peace.

Here are just a few options online for buying or making an Advent wreath (add your own Christ candle in the center):


Lectio Divina for Advent

Each Sunday in Advent we will be practicing Lectio Divina, or scared reading. Then daily readings will be shared one social media Mondays – Fridays for you to practice Lectio Divina at home. You can find more information, including simple instructions here.
