United by Christmas,
United by Christ
Christ was born for all of us,
uniting us as brothers and sisters,
for we are all one in Christ Jesus.
Join us on an Advent Journey
Welcome to your Advent Calendar
Prepare your heart for the Advent Season
Journey with us during these four weeks of Advent and let the light of Christ shine through our love and good actions to our families and neighborhoods.
Prayers & Reflections
Focus on the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of Jesus Christ.
Prayer gives us an opportunity to be thankful for God’s blessings and the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made for all mankind.
About our Christmas Ministry
Each year we work to help you make Advent a special time for yourself and your family. This year we are focusing on the universality of God’s gift of Jesus to all mankind. This incredible thought, regardless of our race, gender, ethnicity, age, or of our current relationship with God, we have all been given the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ.
We hope you take advantage of our Advent calendar, reflections, and prayer guides this year to consider how we are all United By Christmas and Untied by Christ.
“Then Peter proceeded to speak and said, ‘In truth, I see that God shows no partiality.’ ” (Acts 10:34)
