Shawnee Presbyterian Church




Advent Season

Advent is always an exciting time of the year! What a wonderful time to prepare for the coming of the Jesus the Christ. I am always comforted in knowing our schedule of preparation is not affected by the world around us, especially that of the retail stores. The church schedule stays the same with our four Sundays of preparation followed by our quiet recognition of the birth on Christmas Eve.

To help us prepare throughout the Advent season this year everyone in and around the church is invited to join around the coloring tables. In the Narthex we will have beautiful poster size coloring pages for each of the four Sundays of Advent and Christmas itself. Each of us, regardless of age or coloring ability, is invited to sit down for a few minutes before and after worship to add our own color to our posters as we prepare ourselves for the coming of the Christ Child. These posters will be available throughout the week as well for any of us to add to the masterpiece. We invite our Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, Anonymous Groups, Central Standard, Vocal Standard, and Meals on Wheels volunteers to be a part of our entire community preparing for the true meaning of Christmas. These posters will remain available to color through our Christmas Eve Service and will then be displayed on the wall of windows in the Narthex throughout the Sundays of Christmas.

I know full well some are excited by this opportunity and some are quite uncertain how this will work and how each will fit in. I encourage you to be open minded and allow yourself to return to the childlike wonder of the season and the joy found in being together as a church family waiting for the big day, the birth of Jesus.

Happy Advent as we journey and color together,
Pastor Craig
