SCENES OF THE STORY
The word “Advent” comes from the Latin word Adventus, which is a translation of the Biblical Greek word parousia, meaning “coming” “arrival” or “appearing.” During the Christmas Advent season we celebrate the coming of God to us in the birth of Jesus Christ and we look forward to the day when He will come again. There are four weeks to Advent we preach through and enjoy in our homes during the month of December. Check out the SERMONS HERE.
Week 1 - The Prophecy Candle of HOPE
The birth of Jesus was the long awaited fulfillment of God’s promise to come to earth to save us.
Week 2 - The Bethlehem Candle of HUMILITY
The birth of Jesus was the ultimate act of humility where God took on weak human flesh and veiled His divine glory.
Week 3 - The Shepherds Candle of JOY
The birth of Jesus is a joyous event because it tells us God cares about us and came to fulfill the deepest longings of our hearts.
Week 4 - The Angels Candle of PEACE
The birth of Jesus announces God’s mission to cover the distance between men and women and God. Jesus was born to die in order to make peace.
Christians throughout the centuries have celebrated Advent in their homes by lighting the consecutive candles throughout the weeks, doing a short reading, offering a prayer and singing a song. We’ve written an Advent Guide to help you do this!
