Advent Devotional

A digital daily devotional

The Season of Advent is a time of preparation leading up to Christmas. Often days are marked and celebrated with an Advent Calendar that helps “count down” to Christmas and the celebration of Jesus’s birth.

Pastor Colie is again this year putting together a video devotional series for Advent! The theme this year is “Expectation”.  We’ll hear stories from the Bible and from people’s real lives about things they expected but didn’t happen or things they never expected to happen and they did. This year has been full of all sorts of things we never expected. Together, we can remember that God has and continues to act in our world in ways we don’t always expect.

The easiest way to see the videos is to sign up for my email mailings. Click here and enter in your email address. Every morning during Advent, you will have an email that has that day’s video right in it to watch. You can also find the videos directly on YouTube (Rev. Colie Bettivia)follow the church’s Facebook page, or check back on this page for updates!
