Advent Family Devotions

This blog is designed for individuals and families to share in discussion around the lighting of the Advent wreath. This may happen at a dinner table or in the living room. The goal is to get everyone talking and reading scripture together. There will be 5 devotionals a week and a prepartion day for the following Sunday on Saturday. We (Pastor Matt & Pamm Anderson) hope these devotions will help you and your family connect with God and each other this Advent Season.

What is your favorite Christmas carol or song? What makes it your favorite and why?


I really like O Come O Come Emanuel, Angels We Have Heard on High, Carol of the Bells and “I Celebrate the Day” by Reliant K. Each has special meaning for me because I feel they are my soundtracks of the season.  I Celebrate the Day talks about one person’s struggle to express how much Jesus means to them at Christmas.

As we prepare for worship tomorrow read Mary’s song of Praise, sometimes called the Magnificant in Luke 1:46-55.


Mary delivered hope to all of us with the birth of Christ. She was in a terrible situation yet realized God looked upon her with favor and that she would be a blessing to the world. When we serve others, we provide hope to the ones we serve and to us as servants. Let us be beacons of hope as we dash to comfort others this season.


Light the Candle of Hope

Pray: Lord, give us opportunities to bring hope this Advent. Help us to comfort those in need and to receive comfort when we need it. Thank you for the gift of your son Jesus who is the Hope of the world. Amen.
