Last Advent, thousands of people joined us in our Advent study, Long-Expected Jesus. While it may still be warm outside, we have already started working on our 2018 Advent resource and are excited to announce this year’s theme, A Thrill of Hope!

Hope is a word we see sprinkled throughout messages of the holiday season on Christmas cards, coffee mugs, and candles. But what is hope, really? Optimism? Positive thinking? Blind faith? What if hope were something more than any of these–something not only thrilling but life-changing?

We are excited to journey with churches and individuals this Advent season as we discover the hope revealed in Christ.

This year, along with our downloadable Pastor’s Resource, we are offering a devotional book for individuals and a children’s storybook devotional.

Here is a quick sneak peek at what is included in this years Advent resource:
