Advent and Christmas Devotions in the Summer?

Why not?  It is never too early to begin planning ahead!  Advent is a time of preparation, faithful waiting, and hopeful anticipation for the arrival of the Christ-child.  This year St. Mark’s will publish its’ own devotional book for the seasons of Advent and Christmas to help the community prepare for and celebrate these rich seasons.  Each devotion will be written by members and friends of St. Mark’s.  We will need 33 volunteers.  Families are encouraged to write a devotion together. 


  • Devotions may be 250 words reflecting on the scripture or hymn text and Advent/Christmas images.

  • Please conclude each devotion with a brief prayer.

  • Families are encouraged to create a devotion for the booklet

  • Email devotion in a word doc to Stefani Lawrence ( by Oct. 31.
