Advent Devotional

This Advent Devotional has 24 daily readings that help you prepare for Christmas. Each day includes Scripture readings and questions that help you apply and meditate on the Scripture. The Scriptures explore the four themes of Advent - Hope, Love, Joy, and Peace.

Lottie Moon Christmas Offering

Each December Southern Baptists collect a special offering for international missions. All of your gifts to this offering go to support Southern Baptist missionaries who are proclaiming the gospel to the lost in countries all around the world.

Christmas Card Exchange

With the high cost of postage, we understand how expensive it is sending Christmas cards to all your friends at church. That's why we've provided an alphabetized mail box in the Welcome Center. Bring your Christmas cards and put them in the correct slot. Also, don't forget to check the box for Christmas cards left for you. Want to do even more? Consider giving the money you saved on postage to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering?
