What is Advent?
“Advent” means “coming” or “arrival.” During the season of Advent, we celebrate Christ's coming into the world and watch with expectant hope for His coming again.

Sunday Morning Advent Worship
Advent Sunday morning worship at Bon Air is observed at 9:30am (band led informal service in the Commons) and 11:00am (choir & orchestra led service in the Sanctuary). The four Sundays of Advent 2023 we celebrate different themes: Dec. 3rd – Hope; Dec. 10th – Peace; Dec. 17th – Joy; Dec. 24th – Love (note that this Sunday only worship will be at 10:00 a.m. only)
One important part of our Advent worship is the Advent Wreath. The Wreath’s evergreen and candles are visual reminders of the coming of Christ. The four candles represent the four weeks of Advent, and one candle is lit each Sunday. Click for more detailed information about the history of the Advent Wreath:
