Join us as we travel through Advent together—observing the season, reading the Scriptures, and praying together as we approach Christmas Day.
What is Advent? The word “Advent” comes from the Latin word “adventus,” which means “coming,” and the Christian calendar begins with the season of Advent. The purpose of Advent is to invite us to focus on the Incarnation—the coming of Jesus into the world to be with us. Advent also leads us to prayerfully focus on the hope that Jesus will one day come again in His full glory. We are a people of hope, and we celebrate that as one body!
The season of Advent leads up to Christmas and provides an opportunity for us to honor the real reason we celebrate Christmas—the birth of Jesus. What a great reminder for all of us! This year, Advent begins on Sunday, November 28. We invite you to join us using these tools as we spiritually engage with the Advent season.
