For millions of Christians throughout the world, Sunday, Nov. 29, marks the beginning of Advent. 

Advent is the season of the year leading up to Christmas and is observed with various traditions and rituals by churches and other liturgical groups.  The Advent Season lasts for four Sundays and ends on Christmas Eve. 

For a number of years now, Mount Zion Baptist Church in Winston-Salem has conducted an annual revival as the focal point of its Advent Celebration.

Dr. Serenus T. Churn Sr., host pastor stated:  “We want our members and the community-at-large to be in reverence and readiness for this holy season. Every effort and emphasis, therefore,  should be on the real reason for the season, and less on the commercialism of Christmas as it has become, unfortunately.” 

This year, four area churches have been invited to be a part of Mount Zion’s observance of this high season, which points to the birth of Christ.

The schedule of churches and their pastors who have accepted the invitation are: 

Monday, Nov. 30, Jerusalem Baptist Church of Spencer, N.C., whose pastor is Dr. David L. Bracken.

Tuesday, Dec. 1, Mount Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church and its pastor, Bishop Sherwood Davis Sr. They will be Mount Zion’s guest. 

On Wednesday, Dec. 2, the Rev. Donald Jenkins and the St. Paul United Methodist Church will be co-celebrants with Mount Zion for its Advent Revival. 

Closing out the local revival calendar will be members of Zion Baptist Church from Reidsville, N.C. and their pastor, Dr. Michael Long. 

All services begin at 7 p.m.

An Advent devotional book written by Churn will be available, free of charge, to everyone attending the revival services. 

The public is cordially invited to each and every night of Mount Zion’s Advent Revival.

For more information:  Call Kaye Henighan or H. L. Shaw at Mount Zion  at 336-722-2325.
