The Season of Advent is approaching

nullThe season of Advent, which comes comes from the Latin word adventus meaning “coming” or “visit," begins four Sundays before Christmas and ends on Christmas Eve. Advent is the beginning of the liturgical year for Christians. 

During Advent, we prepare for, and anticipate, the coming of Christ. We remember the longing of Jews for a Messiah and our own longing for, and need of, forgiveness, salvation and a new beginning. Even as we look back and celebrate the birth of Jesus in a humble stable in Bethlehem, we also look forward anticipating the second coming of Christ as the fulfillment of all that was promised by his first coming.

Growing together in faith…

Advent is a season of preparation for the first coming of Jesus in Bethlehem and his promised return in days to come. This season we’ll explore God’s promise of restoration and how we begin to get ready to receive the Lord.
