The Advent season begins on December 3rd as we prepare our hearts for the coming of Jesus Christ, first, as a baby at Christmas, and one day, in glory and power at the end of time. This season is one of anticipation, waiting, and prayer even in the midst of busy Christmas preparations. To help you meaningfully engage this season, we have coloring calendars for families and daily devotional books from Living Well Through Advent available on the table in the narthex you to take home with you.
If you would prefer to receive the daily devotionals in your e-mail or purchase an e-book of the devotionals for $.99, more information is available HERE.
