Advent Devotions
Attached please find this week’s Advent Devotions. (We are still waiting for our devotional booklets to arrive. We will get them out to families as soon as we can.)  We hope that you are finding these devotions and the Advent wreath we sent home last week useful in your family’s preparations during this Advent season. It is our hope that every family in our school family takes the opportunity to spend time together around God’s Word in devotion and prayer as we prepare to celebrate Christ’s birth.
