Advent--A Season of Hope and Preparation

While the world around us tells us that it is already Christmas, our faith calls us to pull back from the whirlwind of activity and prepare not for presents under the treee, but the coming of Christ, the Lord of Life into our hearts and in the last days. Below are several articles to help in preparing ourselves for the Advent of our King!

Don't forget that we also have the Little Blue Books available for free at the entrances to the church which provide short reflections for each day of the Advent/Christmas season!
