Advent is the liturgical season leading up to Christmas. Over the four Sundays, we wait and prepare our hearts for the coming of the Christ child. We invite you to engage the season of Advent through worship Sunday mornings, by using our devotional booklet written by church members and staff, and by attending special events and services we have planned.
Throughout the season, we will also be collecting money for the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship’s Offering for Global Missions.
As we celebrate the Advent season, our deacons and staff have written a series of daily devotions to help guide us as we wait patiently for Christmas. Each devotion focuses on a beloved carol of the season, and implores us to meditate on the words that we so often sing together as a congregation. Pick up a devotion book and share it with loved ones. Enjoy time set aside each day of Advent to pause and open your heart to remembering the incredible gift we were all given in Jesus Christ. Read or download the devotions here or pick one up when you’re at church.
