Welcome to the Anthem Advent Journey. This online advent devotional is designed to help us walk together through the next four weeks, counting down and preparing our hearts for Christmas.  

Every week you will find 5 different devotionals for you to choose from. In each devotional you’ll find a few basic items:  A short prayer that can be said silently or aloud, a list of scripture readings, a devotional thought based on those scriptures, and a quick action step to take during the day.  How much time you spend on each devotional is completely up to you. Our hope is that it helps us quiet our hearts and hear from God what he has for us this Christmas season.
