Advent Devotional Dec 22 | Goodrich Memorial UMC

Sep 13, 2023


Welcome to Central Baptist Church's Advent Devotional for December 22. We invite you to join us on this special day as we reflect on the significance of Advent and its role in deepening our faith. This devotional aims to provide you with a meaningful and insightful experience as we prepare for the celebration of Christmas.

What is Advent?

Advent is a season of anticipation and preparation in the Christian calendar. It begins four Sundays before Christmas and lasts until Christmas Eve. During this time, we reflect on the coming of Jesus Christ into the world and the hope and joy it brings to our lives. Advent is a time of spiritual reflection, penance, and prayer as we eagerly await the birth of Jesus.

Importance of December 22 in Advent

December 22 holds special significance in the Advent season. It is a time when we draw closer to the celebration of Jesus' birth. On this day, our devotional focuses on the themes of love, hope, joy, and peace that Advent symbolizes. Through scripture readings, prayers, and meditation, we strive to deepen our understanding of these essential aspects of our faith.

Advent Devotional Program

Our Advent Devotional program on December 22 at Central Baptist Church offers a variety of activities designed to nurture your spiritual growth and enhance your Advent experience:

1. Scripture Readings

Engage in meaningful scripture readings that highlight the stories of hope and promise found in the Bible. Our dedicated clergy will guide you through the passages, providing valuable insights and reflections.

2. Reflection and Prayer
