Advent Devotional books
Advent: A Calendar of Devotions 2019 By Teer Hardy
are available in the back of the sanctuary
or outside the church office beginning December 1.

In a thoughtful and informative style, Teer Hardy leads us through the busy preparations of Advent, reflecting upon God's promises and love for the world while also looking forward to the immense change that will be brought forth by the birth of a baby in Bethlehem. This calendar of daily devotions helps readers focus on what matters most throughout the hustle and bustle of the season.
