He is coming! The first Sunday in Advent marks the beginning of four Sundays of preparation as we get ready to celebrate the birth of our Savior. How can we prepare ourselves?

Not only was she terrified at the sight of an angel, the news the angel gave her would change her life forever. This Advent season God doesn’t want us quaking in our boots. He comes as the prince of peace for our lives. Want to find that peace? Watch!
