The church calendar begins its year with Advent: a season of expectation and waiting that stretches from the fourth Sunday before Christmas and ends on Christmas Eve. Through our Advent Guide, Calvary provides a weekly practice by which to walk through this season with greater intentionality. This guide follows key individuals through a portion of their biblical narrative, observing their obedience to God in bringing about His ultimate plan of redemption. Each week also asks you to consider how their stories impact your own. Throughout Advent, you will see how God redeems pain, blesses obedience, and provides for us as we wait on Him – and ultimately how He fulfills all His promises in Jesus.
This year we are going to walk through Advent together with a series of three videos each week.
On Sundays, we’ll read a story from the Jesus Storybook Bible and sing a carol.
Throughout Advent we will be reading stories from the Jesus Storybook Bible, written by Sally Lloyd-Jones and illustrated by Jabo. Copies of this Bible are available for purchase at Baker Book House (2768 E Paris Ave SE). Mention Calvary Church and receive 40% off.
On Tuesdays, our Advent Crew will be walking through the story together and sharing how that week’s Advent theme works itself out in their own life.
On Thursdays, one of our pastors will share a devotion on that week’s theme.
