The word “Advent” is from the Latin and means “coming”.  In the church, Advent is the 4 weeks before Christmas.  We use that time to prepare our hearts, lives and homes to celebrate the Birth of Jesus – who is our Emmanuel –God with us in flesh. 


Jesus’ words and actions are how God demonstrates his love and truth and way of salvation most clearly.  Throughout scripture we are called to be ready, to be prepared, for His coming.  Advent is thus a time of reverence, joy, celebration, meditation, prayer, worship and generosity – all in the Spirit of our Savior Jesus.
