The season of Advent begins with the Hanging of the Greens at the First Church in Belfast, United Church of Christ, 104 Court St.

Children with help from adults, will bring forth the various decorations that will adorn the sanctuary throughout the Advent and Christmas seasons. Participants will learn about the Advent wreath and the candles to be lit each Sunday of Advent and why blue is the color used to celebrate this season. They will place the first evergreen wreaths on the sanctuary walls and recall the meaning of this ancient symbol. And they will bring the empty manger to the front of the church, congregants what they are preparing their hearts for as Christmas approaches.

All are invited to join in seeking to find the meaning of this season for our lives and even more so, for our world at present.

The First Church is an Open and Affirming congregation, welcoming all. FMI: 338-2282.
