Decorating for Advent
Advent is here and with that comes the annual decorating of the church! The Ascension Altar Guild would like to invite anyone who would like to come out and join us as we make the church festive for the celebration of Jesus' birth on Saturday, December 2nd, beginning at 9 AM. There will be some breakfast goodies, coffee and juice for everyone to enjoy as we prepare the church. For further information contact Beverly Semovoski or Beatrice Showman. Please come join the fun on December 2nd!
Church Christmas decoration removal will take place on Saturday, January 6th, beginning at 9 AM. All help is appreciated; many hands make light work - and it's a great way to begin that New Year's resolution of becoming more involved with the church. Come join the fun!
Chrismons have been a long tradition in the church. Their designs are monograms and symbols of our Lord Jesus Christ. Because these designs have been used by His followers since Biblical times, they are the heritage of all Christians and serve to remind each of us, regardless of denomination, of the One we follow.
All Chrismons are made in a combination of white and gold to symbolize the purity and majesty of the Son of God and the Son of Man. Materials used in their construction are shite Styrofoam, pearls, gold mesh, sequins fringe, braids, beads, wires, etc. Finished decorations range in height from 2 to 12 inches in height.
