Advent Celebration Week One- HOPE
By Carri Pratt
“The Lord Himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive, have a son,
and name him Immanuel.” Isaiah 7:14
Week One is also known as “Prophecy” because it emphasizes the fact that there were over 300 verses foretelling the coming of Jesus Christ into the world. The name Immanuel means “God with us.” The prophetic words of Isaiah were written around 730 B.C.
Candle to Light: The first candle (traditional = purple)
Prayer: Thank God for the HOPE we have in Jesus Christ, His only Son.
