What is Advent?
Advent simply means “arrival” or “coming”. Advent is the four weeks leading up to Christmas day that we prepare to celebrate the first coming of God the Son, Jesus Christ, to save us. The advent season helps us to intentionally remember the greatness of his first coming.
Ok, so what is Advent Conspiracy?
We’ll be taking the four weeks before Christmas to focus on the heart of the Christmas story. This involves more than just our Sunday gathering but a personal challenge to filter how we celebrate through the meaning of the original story of Jesus birth.
Watch the video below for more.
Our hope with Advent Conspiracy is that we can separate the true story of Christ’s arrival from the consumerism which drives the season and learn to love and live like Christ modeled. Join us on Sunday starting December 2 as we seek to recapture the Christmas season!
