the Advent Season


Advent is from the Latin word for “coming” or “arrival,” and it refers to the coming of Christ. It is the celebration of Jesus Christ’s first advent, and our anticipation of His second. Our waiting isn’t simply a moment in between moments, but it is a time that God uses to grow and shape us into the people He has created us to be. We have provided the resources below to remind us of the gospel, which produces faith and hope in our waiting. May this advent season be filled with great joy in Jesus Christ.

ADVENT OFFERING

It was 18 months ago that Athens Church launched Sunday Services. This year we are inviting you to continue your support as we continue to grow and make plans for 2018. Also, part of the Advent offering will be used to support a number of organizations who plant churches, and make disciples both near and far. During this Advent season we are asking that you would go above and beyond your regular financial giving to help us meet our Advent Offering goal. We have set an Advent Offering goal of $25,000 and we are trusting that God will provide through your generous financial gifts. Please join us in praying throughout this Advent season that God would be glorified through our giving.

Advent Music

We are a people surrounded by noise on a daily basis. We want to provide some music that would cut through the noise and encourage you and your family during this season. This playlist contains some Christmas classics, as well as some tracks that are a bit less direct, but still speak to the meaning of advent.
