The Advent wreath, four candles on a wreath of evergreen, is shaped in a perfect circle to symbolize the eternity of God.  In some churches, four purple candles, one for each week of Advent, are used with one larger white candle in the middle as the Christ candle.  Other churches prefer three purple or blue candles with one candle being rose or pink, to represent joy.

We are located two blocks from the University of Montevallo and have an active college program. Our church family offers to become a home-away-from-home for college students.
