Advent Devotions

The Christmas Story for All Ages

Experience the story of Christmas through the Advent devotions. These devotions are a weaving of Matthew and Luke’s version of the Christmas narrative. They are composed by a number of individuals and made available by Lutheran Church of the Shepherd, Minneapolis, MN.

Take the Advent journey with us! Find the devotions by clicking here.

May the Advent season bring hope and a renewed presence of God’s gift of love in Jesus.


Baby Jesus Rocks!

KEEP WATCH for the “BABY JESUS ROCKS”! The shepherds and Wisemen found the baby Jesus and so can you. First Presbyterian Church’s children and youth created Baby Jesus rocks and will be placing them around town during the holiday season. If you find a rock, take a picture and post it on our Facebook page. Wishing you all the blessings of the Christmas season!


Staying connected to God and each other is important to us. Our E-News shares weekly devotional thoughts, church events and announcements.
