Christmas Is Coming

I just love this time of year……Christmas is coming. It is my favorite time of the year. As a little girl our family would do many wonderful things together during the month of December and they are still wonderful memories for me today. Advent is a time when we can begin preparing our heart for Christmas. It is a special time for us to not only enjoy all of the festive things that go along with Christmas but a time to reflect and wait upon the night we celebrate the birth of our Lord.

The last Sunday in November is the first Sunday of advent. On this Sunday we will be giving Advent Calendars to the children during the Children’s moments of both services. These calendars are a tool for you to use with your children each day during the month of December to talk and read about Christ. As you read each day begin to ask God to prepare your heart to be open to Him. These days could lead to wonderful conversations about Christmas and about Christ himself. In all of the busyness of the season, take time with your children to help them understand the true meaning of Christmas.
