Advent is the time of year just preceding Christmas. The word Advent means "coming". In this season, we particularly focus on the Old Testament prophecies that pointed God's people to the coming Savior. Looking back at these promises, it helps us prepare to celebrate again the Savior's birth on Christmas.
The advent wreath is used by Christians as a way of symbolizing the coming of Jesus, the light, into the world.
The congregation of St. Andrew's Lutheran Church was organized by eleven members on June 22, 1947. During the first years in which they gave glory to God, services were conducted in the basement of a home, in rented halls, and in the present church basement. These humble facilities served as places of worship during the initial ten years of the congregation.
