Advent

Starting in the late 1990’s Peace Hill began to celebrate Advent.  We celebrate five sundays in advent…

  1. Prophecy Sunday
  2. The Annunciation
  3. Shepherds and Angels
  4. The Incarnation
  5. Wise Men

During this season we sing some familiar Christmas music, in keeping with the themes of the preaching each week, and we light the Advent candles.  The height of the Advent season for us is our Christmas Eve service, during which we do the Nine Lessons in Carols, a mixture of Scripture readings, done by members of the congregation, which go through the story of the birth of Jesus Christ, and Christmas music sung in response to the readings.
