Weekly Advent Devotional Guide:
Preparing for the coming of christ
Advent is a season of waiting, expecting, and hoping. Beginning four Sundays prior to Christmas and ending on Christmas Eve, Advent helps us prepare for the coming, or “advent” of the Christ child at Christmas. (The word “advent” comes from the Latin word that means “coming.”)
For hundreds of years, Christians have used an Advent wreath to inspire their hopes for the coming of Christ. By lighting candles and reading Bible verses, we are reminded about the meaning of Christ’s birth and become more excited about his coming in the past, in the future, and in our own lives.

We're having an ugly Christmas sweater contest, so dig deep and find something - or make something - truly "UGLY!" Bring a white elephant gift for the game. A white elephant gift is generally a gift that is valued around $5. You can spend more, but you may receive a $5 gift in return!
