Back by popular demand- the Digital Advent Devotional!
This year, in order to help you engage daily with Advent, we are sending our devotions to you via email or text message each day. You can expect the email to arrive sometime before 6 AM each day and your text link to arrive around 7. We will also be posting via social media (Facebook and Instagram) around noon. Each of these posts will contain the same content, though they will each come through to your device a little bit differently. 

We hope that this new thing helps you and your family dig a little deeper and experience a more holy Advent this year. Want to sign up? Use the sidebar at right (below on mobile) to enter your information for emails or find the instructions for text alerts. Each post will appear on this page after it goes live—a digital Advent Calendar for you!

New This Year

This year we are adding a group element to our Advent Devotional. Each afternoon we will post a reflection question in our Experiencing Advent Together Facebook Group. This is an opportunity for you to reflect on your experience with the Advent Devotional with others. We encourage you to join that group if you are on Facebook.
