Special Advent Events

Devotional Resources

To help you be sane, healthy and spiritual during this time, here are four Advent devotional guides to give you a structured way to engage with God during this time of waiting.

Advent Devotional-Vineyard Church      

Adore Him: One Star, One Hope Devotional

Our Advent devotional is now available on the YouVersion Bible app.
During Advent, we remember that Jesus is God’s Star, heralding God’s love and forgiving power to us. Each devotional in this series is for one of the Sundays leading up to Christmas. The fifth, and final devotional, is for Christmas Day. Share these short reflections around a meal table, or use them independently. More than anything, lift your eyes to God’s Star – Jesus – as your Hope this season.
