The Songs of Advent

The Songs of Advent

Help your whole church explore the miracle of Jesus' birth through the songs of Mary, the angels, Simeon, and Zechariah.

As familiar as we are with the songs of Christmas, there are four songs recorded in the Bible to celebrate the birth of Jesus that most of us aren't familiar with. The angels sang a song to the shepherds. Mary sang a song to God after she had time to get over the shocking news that she was going to be the mother of the Savior. Simeon also had a song. Then there's Zechariah's song. Zechariah was an elderly priest who sang after being visited by an angel.

Help your church explore these great canticles of faith this Advent season, both in the weekly worship services and your small groups.

Note: The different formats for each piece of the campaign are bundled as follows: one PDF for all four weeks of preaching material, one PDF for all four weeks of Bible study material, one Powerpoint presentation for all four weeks, and one Microsoft Word document for the bulletin insert.
