Advent is our Christmas series starting December 2 through Christmas Eve.

The word advent simply means “arrival.” Much like the season of Lent helps prepare our hearts for Easter Sunday, Advent helps prepare us to celebrate Christmas.

During Advent we are mindful of waiting in anticipation – like the early Israelites eagerly awaited the arrival of the coming Messiah, we wait for Christ to be “born anew” in our hearts every season as we contemplate the miraculous gift of Jesus’ incarnation.

As post-resurrection Christians, however, our waiting isn't for the first coming of Jesus, but for His second arrival, this time not as a baby but as a victorious, conqueror-King.
