An advent guide for adults and families

As we begin the holiday season, Advent helps prepare our hearts for Christmas and focus our minds on Jesus. Like the trailer for a blockbuster movie, Psalm 23 teases the arrival of something big: the story of Jesus. In this passage, we see our need for Jesus to save us and the lengths He will go to do what only He can.

Our advent guide has been written by five of our staff members. Each week’s entry has three sections: An Adult Devotional, A Family Devotional, and the Family Activity. You may also choose to use Advent candles, tree ornaments, or other ways to countdown the weeks until Christmas. The idea of Advent is to eagerly await the arrival of Christmas in the same way that humankind eagerly awaited the birth of Jesus.
