First Sunday of Advent – Sunday, December 2
Advent Festival – 10:15 a.m. in Roper Hall
All are invited to the annual Advent Festival in Roper Hall at 10:15 a.m. on the First Sunday of Advent, December 2. Together we will stuff stockings for local organizations, make Advent wreaths and Christmas ornaments, pick up Advent resources, write Christmas cards to homebound members, and visit with St. Nicholas. Looking for gifts that have special meaning this year? That morning you’re invited to browse the tables in the Tower Cloister to buy presents that support nonprofits in Dallas and Honduras. Vendors include Honduras Threads, Journey of Hope, Threads of Hope, the Kay Andrews Bookstore, and Batwa Baskets.
Advent Lessons and Carols – 5:00 p.m. in the Church
The Transfiguration Choir and congregation will celebrate the richness of the Advent season through scripture and song on Sunday, December 2 at 5:00 p.m. in the Church. During the service the choir will move from place to place throughout the church as it sings carols and anthems. The congregation will join in singing hymns, chants, and carols accompanied by organ, handbells, and other instruments. A reception follows the service in Roper Hall.
