Daily Advent Devotionals


This Advent Season, God with us brings hope, love, joy and peace with our Daily Advent Devotionals! Each devotion is written by a different member of our St. Paul's community. We think you'll find their personal stories and insights encouraging, thought-provoking and inspirational. The devotions start on November 27 (the first Sunday in Advent) and will correlate with our weekend sermons through Christmas.

Pick up a copy this weekend at worship or click HERE to view a digital copy.

Help us share the good news by sharing the link to the devotions on your social media!
