Advent

Advent is the four Sundays leading up to Christmas Day. It starts sometime between Nov. 27 and Dec. 3. In 2018, advent begins Dec. 2.

Advent is a chance to remember the long wait for the promised Messiah and to look for His second coming.

Take some time this December to remind your family of the true meaning of Christmas. We have several Advent family devotionals to choose from:
