In 2013, 540,000 wreaths were donated and placed at more than 900 participating locations.

Last year, American Heritage Girls in the Washington, DC area laid approximately 3,000 wreaths at a nationwide remembrance ceremony at the U.S. Soldiers’ and Airmen’s Home National Cemetery in Washington D.C. Help fill the entire cemetery of 13,000 veterans’ graves this year with your donation today!

Advent Wreath — Chuck Knows Church

Advent

Sunday, December 2,  is the First Sunday in Advent.   I’m skipping a couple of the Chuck Knows Church episodes because this one is so timely.  We’ll get back to the others after Christmas.

The first Candle is lit on the first Sunday of Advent, shortly after November 30. It is called the Prophecy Candle and reminds us that Jesus’ coming was prophesied hundreds of years before He was born. The candle’s purple color represents Christ’s royalty as the King of Kings.

Suggested Bible Reading: Luke 1:26-38

Chuck Knows Church — ADVENT WREATH. Four candles in a circle with a big one in the middle? Yep, take a moment and learn the basics about the advent wreath. And why is the pink candle…pink?
