Church of Christ Congregational (UCC), Norfolk, CT

The First Sunday in Advent

Our Youth Group made our “Rainbow Doors” in the spring of 2017. They boldly proclaimed “Our Doors are Open to All” on our front lawn, and people stopped and took pictures and told their friends. The doors then went to the UCC Churches in Cornwall and Salisbury, then to Silver Lake Camp and Conference Center, and then to Botelle Elementary School. All that exposure was wonderful, but it took its toll, and the doors had to be scrapped. The picture behind our Advent Wreath is a reminder of their meaning. As we prepare to welcome Jesus this advent we affirm again that we strive to be a home of “Extravagant Welcome”, and an Open and Affirming Congregation.

 

Last week: Happy Thanksgiving!
