Celebrating Advent

This year, the Advent Season begins on Sunday, Nov. 28 through Christmas Eve. We will go through a wonderful little devotional, “The Star-A Journey to Christmas.” We will go on a thirty-day journey for the four weeks leading up to Christmas, going through the weekly Advent themes of hope, love, joy and peace. In this little devotional you will find great daily reading and activity ideas for families. We will experience God in a special way as we celebrate and worship the coming and birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

 

We wanted to give you a very simple instructions and suggestions to make this Advent a very special and powerful time for you and your household.
