2019 Advent Guide
Advent comes from the Latin word adventus meaning “coming” or “visit.” During the season of Advent, we prepare for and anticipate the coming of Christ. The Park has created a Hymnology guide which includes a weekly candle lighting scripture and prayer. These are the same readings we will be doing each Sunday during the season. Each week also includes a devotional for use in your personal study or in missional community groups along with discussion questions. For a digital copy of the guide you can click here.
