Advent Workshop
Sunday, November 27, 10:00am-Noon
UCDS Interconnections room

Please join us at this year’s Advent Workshop, as we focus on the spiritual side of the Advent and Christmas season. The Advent Workshop is a time to purchase or create items to celebrate Advent in the “domestic church.”

We’ll have fresh evergreens, colorful ribbons, and wreath frames and candles for assembling Advent wreaths. There will also be a variety of crafts - something for all ages - including ornament-making, candle-decorating, crafts using recycled Christmas cards, and a straw-in-the-manger craft to motivate kind actions throughout the Advent season. Try something new!

In addition to the crafts, we’ll have religious Advent Calendars for sale for $2.00.
