My family has missed advent services for the last few years. The drive to our previous church was too far for us to attend evening services. As I was getting ready to head over to out current church for choir practice, yesterday I remembered that choir was early due to the evening Advent service. We could go to Advent services this year!!

I yelled up the stairs for everyone to grab a quick supper and get dressed in matching, clean clothes while I was at choir. I told the children that I would race home after choir and pick them up for church. My youngest two girls were so excited to be able to go to church twice this week. Mike called me just before I walked out the door. He was coming home from work early, so we were able to go to church as a family. What a blessing to live close enough to church to attend evening services again!

There are so many that live close to church yet don't attend because they are too busy during Advent. You have experienced missing Advent services and know what a blessing they are. I would guess the congregation enjoyed seeing children at an evening service too!

The church has two advent services, one at noon, the other at 7:00 pm. Sadly, only 18 people (including the pastor and organist) attended the evening service. Our family was 1/2 of the congregation. The weather was really bad, so maybe there will be more next week.
