Advent and Christmas

We present this daily devotional for the season of Advent, which begins on November 28. This compilation of writing and art from the WFBC Family will guide you through daily devotions for this special time of year. A full version of our Advent Daily Devotional can be downloaded here. You can also pick up a hard copy at Sunday’s worship service. We pray that you are blessed by this book and the Advent season.

For the season of Advent, Wake Forest Baptist Church has created a series of videos as an opportunity for further reflection and contemplation on each of the four themes of Advent: Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love. These Contemplative Advent Reflections videos will be posted to Facebook and YouTube each Sunday afternoon of Advent and shared by email each Monday morning.
These contemplative videos are intended to be a complement to our WFBC Advent Daily Devotional and a weekly encouragement to reflect more deeply on each of the themes of Advent.
May God bless you and fill you with Christ’s HOPE this week and Advent season.
Contact Ryan Wilson, Minister of Spiritual Formation & Administration, for questions or more information, or to receive these videos by email each Monday morning:
