The Advent Wreath (4th week in Advent)

Every week in chapel our students light a candle on the Advent Wreath and hear what each candle symbolizes. As each candle is lighted, we gain excitement of our Savior's birth. We thought you would like to know about it too....

History. The concept of the Advent wreath originated among German Lutherans in the 16th Century. However, it was not until three centuries later that the modern Advent wreath took shape.

Lighting of the Advent Wreath & Prayer


1st Candle - (purple or blue) Prophets’/Prophecy Candle - Hope & Expectation [Isaiah Prophecies of Messiah]


2nd Candle (purple or blue) Bethlehem Candle - Faith [Micah - Faith for the Journey to Bethlehem]


3rd Candle - (pink) - Shepherds Candle - Joy [Lowly lifted up / Mary & Shepherds]


4th Candle - (purple or blue) Angels’ Candle - Peace [Message from the skies: Peace!]


5th Candle - (white, in center) Christ or Jesus Candle - Light & Life / Purity [Jesus is the Life and Light of the World / Takes Away the Sin and Darkness of the World]
