To truly experience the quiet, peaceful Advent that our hearts desire, we must be intentional. To aid in that effort, Chamblee First is compiling a booklet of Advent and Christmas-themed devotional thoughts. But rather than prepare for you, we want to prepare with you and assemble an Advent guide comprised of stories and experiences from among our congregation. Will you participate by submitting devotional thoughts to share?

This Advent, we will be celebrating the season in song. Pastor Eric’s sermon series will focus on the true gifts of Christmas … Peace, Joy, Hope, and Love. With those themes in mind, we hope you will accept this invitation to submit an Advent Devotional. Please do not worry about perfection but, rather, respond from the heart. Submissions are due November 4.

2022 Advent Devotion Submission
GUIDANCE FOR WRITING YOUR DEVOTIONAL: Think about what “Celebrating the Season in Song” and/or what “Peace, Joy, Hope, or Love” mean to you. Reflect upon a Christmas song, story, or tradition and its impact or influence on your life. Then, in the space below, write about those feelings or lessons in 200 to 400 words. It is not necessary to cite scripture but if there is a related verse that resonates with you, please include it. You may also upload a photo.
