Advent Art Experience//Sunday Dec 3 – 24//dcf gatherings

We invite you to participate with us as we observe Advent. Advent is a time of year set aside for expectant waiting and preparation of Jesus’ first and second coming. The first being His birth, the second being His return at the end of time. The word “advent” comes from a Latin word meaning “coming”. At dcf we believe in process and we love to move through each of the four weeks leading up to Christmas focusing on the Hope, Peace, Joy and Love that Jesus brings the world.

In addition to the Advent Wreath Prayer Activity and Community Advent Project each week we will be creating and displaying art. Our art gallery is open to anyone and we welcome all kinds of creative expression. We have walls and tables available for you.

Consider being a part of the Advent Art Experience this year! Stay tuned for pictures as we curate this art gallery together.
