Advent is a time of anticipating the arrival of the King. As followers of Jesus we are always in a season of Advent, waiting for His second coming. During these weeks leading up to Christmas we remember and celebrate Jesus’ birth…His first arrival.

Use this plan to join us as we read passages each week as a reminder that our Savior, King Jesus, was born two thousand years ago…and that He’s coming back one day to reign as King forever.
