It is our prayer that the timeless truths of God’s Word shared in these devotional booklets will strengthen you in faith, enhance your celebration of the season, and cause your spirit to rejoice. The booklets may be read online in a page-turning format or as a PDF (downloadable and suitable for printing or storing on your device).

Looking ahead: The upcoming Advent Devotions will run from Dec 1 – 25, 2018. Each one will focus on one of the names of Jesus. They will be connected to the ancient tradition of Chrisom Ornaments.
