Advent 2014

The resources shared here are designed to be ideas for celebrating the four Sundays of Advent. Interpretations of the Advent Sundays are varied.  However, this resource will outline the four Sundays as Hope, Love, Joy, and Peace.

Feel free to adapt these worship ideas to your desired order. While these resources are centered around the Advent Wreath Lighting every Sunday, many of the
readings, videos, songs, and dramas can be spread out throughout the worship service to enhance the theme for that particular Sunday.  Each week also includes an Advent Challenge and Prayer Focus to help center us during this Advent season.

Pastors, Christian educators, and worship planners are encouraged to be creative and use these resources to best fit the congregation(s) they serve.  As we prepare ourselves for the birth and second coming of our Lord, may this Advent season fill you and your congregations with the hope, love, joy, and peace
that this holy season inspires in us!
