The Community Church at SaddleBrooke hosts 10th annual Advent Tea Celebration

Nancy Klawitter

Advent is a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the birth of the Christ Child. This year will be the tenth annual Advent Celebration by The Community Church at SaddleBrooke.

Please join us on Wednesday, December 3, 2014, at the HOA 1 Vistas Dining Room. Doors will open at 11:30 a.m. so you may enjoy all the beautiful, uniquely decorated tables and Christmas decorations. We will begin our Advent Celebration promptly at noon. The cost is only $15 per person. Please let us know if you are on a gluten free diet. Seating is limited.

In order to make it extra special and meaningful, we will celebrate Advent with a musical interlude with a flutist and harpist, Victorian Christmas Carolers, a delightful lunch, scrumptious dessert and tea. The Tea will highlight our Advent Celebration. Our guest speaker this year is SaddleBrooke’s own Darbie Baker. Her topic will be No Room in the Inn.

We will enjoy Mary Did You Know sung by Victorian Carolers and join in Christmas songs led by our Carolers, Ron and Leah, Kari and Brent and Nancy Carlson. We will close the service by lighting our Advent Candles to the music of Silent Night played by Earline Lewis on guitar and Joanne Thomas at piano and then join in song with our Victorian Carolers.

This is a wonderful opportunity to take time out of our busy holiday schedules to relax and enjoy The Reason for the Season with friends. This will be a memorable program of special music, reflection and inspiration as we begin preparations for celebrating the birth of Christ. The Advent Celebration is open to women of all faiths.
