The Beauty of Advent II
The Beauty of Advent II
Everyone can have joy, peace and hope during one of the most hectic  seasons of the year. Advent is an avenue to having these intangible  gifts not just during this season, but all year round. Advent is a  special time of preparing our hearts for the celebration of the birth of  Jesus Christ-the Savior of the world. Many celebrate that at Christmas.  From having a personal discovery of Emmanuel, to a time of  consecration, focused time in prayer, worship and Bible study, to  renewing one's mind, advent can usher in newness in the lives of anyone  that will give their heart to God. If you are new to Advent, we have a  guide for you. Check out Worship Life: Not Just For Sunday. And let's journey together this Advent!
