About the Season of Advent

Advent is a season of four weeks including four Sundays. Advent derives from the Latin adventus, which means "coming." The season proclaims the coming of Jesus Christ—whose birth we prepare to celebrate at Christmas, who comes continually in word and sacrament, and whose return in final victory we anticipate. Purple is the color for paraments, stoles, and banners. Other special symbols used at Reveille UMC are the Advent wreath, an evergreen wreath with four purple candles and a center, white Christ candle, and the Chrismon tree, an evergreen tree covered with white monograms of Christ.
