What is Advent?
Advent refers to the 4 weeks before Christmas in which we prepare our hearts and minds for celebrating the birth of Jesus. In the church, Advent is celebrated by many traditional Christmas activities, but there are also unique Advent activities that can help you and your family reflect on and prepare for what Jesus's birth means for us as Christians today.
