Advent Devotions

Daily devotions can help us deepen our understanding of God coming into our world, not just in the past when Christ was born, but each day as we are born anew and ready to bring light to others.

Printed Devotions

We have ordered copies of the devotion "God lifts the Lowly" from PCUSA. Get yours at tea time beginning November 25 or request a copy by email  to info@pccsf.org

Material for our Advent theme has been adapted from materials developed by Marcia McFee at the Worship Design Studio

Into This World 

In the scriptures, we can look at the world into which God came in human flesh. Like our own time, this world seemed an unlikely or even hostile environment for this fragile incarnation of peace and hope. This season we will proclaim the entrance “into this world” again of the light for which we still so desperately yearn. What are we called to bring into this world?”

We proclaim, We Commit, We are Called
