The season of Advent is a time of anticipation and preparation … culminating with Christmas. The term literally means “the approach” or “the arrival.” Jesus instructs His followers to “Watch. Stay awake. Get ready and prepare!” At each of December’s worship services, various members of our church family will lead us in preparing our hearts to receive the Christ–child. We will focus on Jesus as the fulfillment of God’s PROMISE … Jesus as the LIGHT of the world … Jesus as the fullest expression of God’s LOVE for the world … and Jesus as our HOPE.
The following online resources will also guide us throughout this month of anticipation and preparation:
