United Methodist missionaries share reflections during this Advent season, the four Sundays before Christmas. We invite you to ponder these devotions from the General Board of Global Ministries.

To support the work of United Methodist missionaries, consider how you can give love, joy, hope and peace through a denomination-wide year-end giving campaign. Give here.

Advent begins November 28, 2021, and continues through December 24, 2021.
