Advent is a time of preparing our hearts for Christmas Day by remembering and anticipating everything the birth of Jesus accomplished, and all the long awaited promises that were fulfilled. It is our hope that as individuals or as families, you will set aside time this season to remember not only that Jesus came, but why he came!

Look for Advent guides to help you do just this in the church lobby beginning Sunday, November 20, or download a digital copy using the buttons below.

2022 Advent Resources

The Village Church Advent Guide

This guide contains five weeks of material, with 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 Life Group or with friends, roommates, or other community.

The Advent study walks through the narrative of Jesus’ birth. It begins in the Garden with God’s promise of a Savior and ends with an eager anticipation of Jesus’ promised return. In the middle, God shows His unmistakable faithfulness in sending the promised Rescuer. We see His love for the lowly and outcast as He proclaims the news of His Son to the shepherds. We marvel at His heart to see all nations come and worship His Son through the Magi’s journey.

Oak Pointe Milford Daily Devo

The daily devo is designed to help you form daily rhythms and habits shaped by grace so that you might draw nearer to Christ. They consist of guided prayer and scripture readings that will be focused on Advent during this season.

Lifeway Kids Advent Guide

Christmas is an exciting time where families can see how God has given us peace, joy, hope, and love! Each week’s devotion will explore one of these themes as you open the Bible as a family and read a part of the Christmas story. After you read the story, we have included discussion questions to help get the conversation started and connect this story from Scripture to your kids’ lives.

One of the best parts of Christmas is the memories that we make with our families, and we want to give you a chance to make some of these memories. In each devotion, we are including nativity figures from the Bible story that your family can print out and decorate. By the fourth week, you will have a full nativity set to help remember the Bible stories and how God has given us peace, joy, hope, and love!
