We are so excited to offer you a few different options for your devotional time during the advent season.

“The Fullness of Time”– Celebrate Advent and draw closer to God through the daily reflections and prayers inspired by Scripture and the spiritual writings of Henri J.M. Nouwen. This devotional offers rich, warm and encouraging reflections that invite you to pray each day and encounter Emmanuel, God-with-us.

“Season’s Greetings – Welcoming Christ through the Traditions of Christmas” walks alongside your family as you drive around looking at the neighborhood light displays or sit at home drinking cocoa. Gather together as a family to spend a few minutes each day reading a Bible verse, listening to a short devotion, then discussing and praying about it. Optional family activities are included on each page. Be encouraged as you continue to welcome Christ through your family’s Christmas traditions.

Printed Booklets:

You can pick up a printed copy of either booklet from a church lobby or the church office. (Update on November 24: we did run out of printed booklets last weekend; we ordered more which are expected to arrive by Wednesday, December 1.  We will have them in the lobbies again on December 5.)
