“The word advent means “arrival.” Advent traditions celebrate the first advent (the birth) of Jesus Christ. These same celebrations view the Christmas story in light of God’s larger plan of salvation, looking forward to his second advent (his return) as King. While the virgin birth of Jesus is amazing, what Jesus did in dying on the cross for our sins is the most incredible part of his story. We would have little reason to celebrate apart from the saving work of Jesus on the cross and the anticipation of his return.”
Join us this Sunday for our Advent as we prepare our hearts for celebrating Christmas!
