Family Devotional

Unwrapping the Names of Jesus

As we enter the season of advent and prepare our homes for Christmas, we want to encourage you, along with your family, to prepare your hearts for The Coming of Emmanuel.

The church would like to gift each family a devotional book to guide your family through daily devotions for the season of Advent. The books will be available on Sunday mornings at the Welcome desk. 

We would encourage your family to gather at dinner or at bedtime, read the daily entry together, and pray. To help engage your family, we have put together some lists of advent activities available below.
