Advent Devotional

This year, the devotions for our Advent devotional will be written by the members of our congregation. The devotions will be available in printed booklet form and online on the church website and Facebook page. Devotions will begin on the first Sunday of Advent, November 27th, and continue each day until Christmas day. 

The theme for our devotions will be: “Words of Hope, Peace, Joy and Love.” These devotions will help members of our church family learn more about each other, learn from each other, and prepare for the celebration of Christmas. Each day of the Advent season, a passage of scripture has been chosen from the scriptures assigned to the daily lectionary. These devotions may be written by individuals, couples, or families of all ages. 

If you would like to participate in this project by writing a devotion, please sign up online: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0E4AA9AF22A4FE3-unity where you can choose the date for which you would like to provide a devotion. The assigned scripture for that day and the Advent word is listed beside the date. More guidelines for devotion writing can be found here.

Devotions are due November 1st. We are also looking for a cover illustration for the printed booklet. Please call or email Kathryn McGregor at 547-5543 or KMcGregor@UnityFortMill.org about illustration guidelines or with any questions you may have about this devotion writing project.
