Advent Conspiracy was founded on the radical idea that we can celebrate Christmas humbly, beautifully, and generously. Advent is the story of a wondrous moment when God entered our world to make things right. It is the greatest story ever told and it changes everything—including the way we celebrate Christmas.
Join the groundswell of Christ-followers who are choosing to make Christmas what it should be—a joyous celebration of Jesus’ birth that enriches our hearts and the world around us.
How do you plan to …
We have daily Advent devotionals available downstairs from the writings of C.S. Lewis and Henri Nouwen to help us reflect on the season. There are also family friendly Advent kits you can get outside the nursery if you want to invite your kids to Worship Fully!
You’re invited to consider spending less by focusing on giving gifts that bless our neighbors throughout Bellingham. Here are a few opportunities to give more — gift tags will be available on our Giving Tree in the fellowship hall:
Bless an individual who is a part of Lighthouse Mission’s Agape Home. Return your gifts wrapped to FPC by 12/16! All tags are specific to an individual so if you take one make sure to get their gift!
Bring joy to kids and families touched by Tierra Nueva’s ministry (migrant families, recovery from addiction, in transition, affected by incarceration). You can donate directly to Tierra Nueva and they can purchase gifts accordingly.
