Advent is a word that means “coming” or “visit.” In the Christian season of Advent, we prepare for the “advent” of Christ at Christmas.
Part of the beauty of Christmas lies in its nostalgia – same traditions, same songs, same story. Yet each Christmas is slightly different.
Sometimes the change is more noticeable than other times. But each year’s celebration somehow speaks its familiar message with a freshness that can only be heard by ears a year older.
As you journey towards Christmas, may God prepare your heart to receive in a new way, the good news of the birth of Christ.
December 5 | 5:00 pm
