Christmas/Advent Survival Kit 2020
The celebration of Advent begins November 29. The purpose of this season of the church year is to look toward the coming of Christ to earth–a season focused on waiting. It is a time of preparing for the glory of Christmas day. Today, I want to share with you a few resources to help you with your celebration of Advent. Some will help you in your worship planning; others will help you in your church and family devotionals.
