November

Advent is the first Sunday after Thanksgiving until Christmas Eve. Traditionally this is the time for us to prepare for Jesus to come. We remember Him coming at Christmas, born as a baby so He could grow up to save us. And we look forward to Jesus coming again at the end of the world. For November and December, we will read 1 and 2 Thessalonians. These two books teach us some about Christ coming again, and also encourage us to live as God's people while we wait for Jesus to come.
