The Anticipated Christ
starting Sunday, November 27
Advent marks the beginning of the Christian calendar. It is four weeks of looking forward to the coming of Christ. It’s a time when we purposely sit with the anticipation of our deliverance. This anticipation requires the discipline of waiting and it is an opportunity to experience God while we wait. As we reflect on the biblical story of creation, fall, and our salvation in Jesus Christ, we want this narrative to shape our lives in the present and our expectations for the future. In our Advent 2022 series, The Anticipated Christ, we will discover the hope that is only found in Jesus.
