WHAT IS ADVENT?

Advent is formed from a latin word meaning, "coming" or "arrival." It's historically been a time where the Church celebrates Jesus' first advent and anxiously waits for His second advent. It is a time for remembering and rejoicing, watching and waiting. A time to reflect on the promises of God and to anticipate the fulfillment of those promises with patience, prayer, and preparedness. Jesus Christ has come and will come again. As the Church, this is our hope. His coming is our joy, for He is our good and our greatest treasure.

Our culture will constantly give you promises that it can't keep during this season. We hope that the source of our joy, Jesus, will be greatly treasured as we pursue Him during this time.
