Pastoral Blog Posts

We want Advent to be more about formation than information for you and your family, yet we still think it’s helpful to learn and grow in your understanding of the history and theology behind Advent and the story it tells. Consider these blog posts inspired from the songs of the season from one of the pastors at Weems Creek. Use these to dig deeper into the season.

Advent Devotional Guide

We have provided a devotional guide with a Bible reading plan and four weeks of devotional material that has both a study to complete on your own as well as a plan to help families talk about the Advent narrative together. The family portions are designed to work for families of all shapes and sizes and do not require extensive preparation. Either portion of the guide can also be used to facilitate discussion within your Bible Study Group or with friends, roommates or other community.

Spotify Playlist

Each Sunday in the Worship Service, the sermon will focus on the biblical text that inspired the song title of each week. In both the “Personal Study” and “Faith@Home” sections, you’ll find additional suggested songs to listen to every week. These songs are available on our Advent playlist posted to Spotify. We hope and pray these songs encourage you and your family throughout the season.

During the holiday season it is easy to get lost in busyness and the consumer-driven “promises” of our culture, focusing on the shadow rather than the substance—Jesus Christ. But amid the fleeting things that fail to save us and fill us, God comes through on His promises.
