He is coming!

Advent means "coming" -- and we wait with patience, anticipation and hope.  Happy New Year!  It's also the beginning of a new church year.  Advent begins 4 Sundays before Christmas.  We celebrate one theme each week: 
Hope!  Peace!  Joy!  Love!
The world needs these!

Here are resources written for you on your Advent Journey...
