Advent Season 2017


Tustin Presbyterian Church



Although it culminates in Christmas, Advent is a separate season altogether.

Advent is a season of preparation and waiting.  Advent is the beginning of a new church year.

Advent is the time we anticipate the coming of Christ’s light into the world.
