The Church Year:   The colors serve to adorn the worship space, and to call attention to the nature of the season or festival being celebrated.  A brief summary of their usage, according to the church year, follows:

Advent:   Blue is associated with Advent, suggesting hope. This association originated in Scandinavia, probably because purple dye was too expensive for churches to use. Some assemblies use Purple in Advent, a color associated with royalty as the church awaits the newborn king. (note, this is a different meaning than when it is used in Lent; see below).
