The world did not understand that the mighty prophesied Messiah King would make His entrance in a lowly manger. Jesus, the King of all Kings, chose to come into the world in the most humble way to make a way for us. This Christmas season, we will discover what it looks like to live our lives Before the King. Before the King came, God sent prophecies of our coming Rescuer to give us hope. Before the King was crowned, in humility he would experience ridicule and rejection unto death so that we would not have to. And before the King comes again, we have the opportunity to stop leaving baby Jesus in the manger and accept Him as the risen King Jesus who will return for His redeemed!

Before the King, in His presence, everything changes. We will live differently when we know, love, serve, and obey the King. Join us in bringing it all Before the King this Christmas season.

CHRISTMAS SEASON AT CHURCH AT THE MILL

You can be a part of Christmas in many ways at Church at The Mill. Each Sunday in December we will celebrate the birth of Jesus and what it means to live our lives Before the King! We will have a multi-generational worship experience, a special Christmas Celebration Worship Experience and finally, four identical Candlelight Worship Services on Christmas Eve/Day for you to choose from. See the service dates below per campus. Throughout the Christmas season, original Before the King Advent Devotions, accompanied by a Bible reading plan, are available for the entire family to experience God’s Word as well as Christmas-themed activities together.

CELEBRATE ADVENT
WITH OUR 6-WEEK
DEVOTIONAL

Join us in pausing and reflecting on Christ this Advent season by using our Advent devotional plan. This weekly resource will be for each week of Advent, beginning Sunday, November 27th, and includes Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. This plan will provide weekly scripture, reflection, family activities, and more. See below what Advent is and how we will celebrate it!

WHAT IS ADVENT AND WHAT WE ARE DOING TO CELEBRATE IT?

Group 16

Advent is from the Latin word “adventus”, meaning “coming” or “arrival.” Advent is a season of anticipation when Christ-followers prepare their hearts to celebrate the coming of Jesus. Advent is observed over the period of four Sundays and weeks before Christmas, beginning the Sunday after Thanksgiving (November 27th), and including special observances on Christmas Eve and/or Christmas Day.

Join us in pausing and reflecting on Christ this Advent season by using our Before the King Advent devotional plan. Our devotional plan will include weekly scripture, a devotion, conversation starters, and family activities for all ages. There is one devotion for each week, beginning on Sunday, November 27th and concluding on Christmas Day. Our Before the King Bible reading plan includes five days of scripture reading for each week beginning on November 28th and ending on December 30th. Access each devotional below.
