      The Calendar Year has 4 Seasons: Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. The Church Calendar has a different set of Seasons: Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Easter, Pentecost, and Kingdomtide. Each Season of the Church Year celebrates a different aspect of Christ’s life.

      Advent marks the beginning of the Church Year; Advent begins on the Sunday following Thanksgiving Day and comes to an end on Christmas Eve. Advent is a time for us to prepare our hearts and minds and lives for the newness which Christ brings to life. Advent is a season to invite Christ into our hearts and lives, and to make him our King and Decision-Maker.
