Advent

This Advent season at The Grove, we want to help you rediscover the True Light.

Light is a common metaphor during this season-- we hang lights around our houses and on our trees-- but originally this metaphor came from the tradition of Advent. Advent is the four-week season leading up to Christmas Day. Traditionally, Advent begins in darkness and churches all over the world gradually light candles throughout the season to symbolize Jesus, the Light of the World, coming into the world.

On this page, you will find resources to help you rediscover the True Light in all that you do this Advent season. Access our Advent Guide to help you plan for a meaningful season. Download our Spotify playlists to bring intentionality to your celebrations. Get information on our Christmas services and events to bring you and your family closer together this season.

Advent a joyful hope title 1 Social

What if you could do Advent differently this year?

It’s December 21st. You’ve made it through four holiday parties, three White Elephant exchanges, two late night runs to Target for last minute gifts, one mall Santa, and you still have those cookies to bake for your neighbors. You look at your calendar and wonder, “Is it supposed to be like this?”

What you wanted this Christmas was the same thing you want every Christmas: that feeling when the tree is lit and your family is home. But somehow you get to the end of the season and you’ve only experienced this feeling fleetingly if at all. But what if you could experience Advent differently?

With dozens of suggested practices and links to helpful resources, you can use this guide to help you find meaning in the Advent season
