Christmas & Advent

She gave birth to her firstborn child, a son, wrapped him snugly, and laid him in a manger.

Advent is always that time of year where the best of humanity rises to the occasion and we share with each other what hope, love, peace and joy really can look like every single day. Remember that moment someone shared a kind word with you on a day they didn't you needed it? How about that time someone let you go first in line with your smaller grocery basket in the busy, long checkout lines at Walmart? Or how about that time when you had the chance to finally see your grandparents in the nursing home this year and were able to give some joy to not only your family but other grandparents, parents, sisters, and brothers who were just in the room down the hallway from your family?

With you and your family, we invite you this Advent to embody the meaning of hope, love, peace and joy and join us at Calvary as we learn, grow, serve and seek God through it all.

Reverse Advent Calendar

What would it be like if instead of opening an Advent calendar that gives you something each day, you instead filled an empty container each day with something specific that you give to someone else?
