New City Calendar

Advent

This Sunday

Advent – Heaven Invades Earth

God’s Protection and Delight

Scripture

The Advent Season is a season where we stand right in the middle of two realities. Advent means “arrival or coming.” As we gather together during the Advent season, we are are reminded that there was an arrival – there was a coming that has already happened – the birth of Jesus Christ.

As Christians, we stand here looking back to what has happened and but also looking forward to what will happen. We look back in remembrance and we look forward with a longing and expectation.
