Are you ready for Christmas?

In the busyness of the holiday season, it’s easy to become so distracted that we forget why we’re even celebrating: the gift of Immanuel, “God with us.” Advent begins today, December 3, giving us the coming four weeks leading up to Christmas to reflect on the miracle of God choosing to enter the world in human form.

We’ve selected these Plans to help you make the most of Advent. Each one is designed specifically to help you realign your heart and mind with biblical truths about who Jesus is, and what his sacrifice means for our lives today:

This #GivingTuesday ❤️ reach the world.

Giving Tuesday

November 28th is Giving Tuesday, a social movement that helps people give back by donating time, money, or influence to a cause they feel passionate about. Celebrated the Tuesday after Cyber Monday, it’s a day to encourage kindness and generosity.

The Bible App is completely free, without any advertising or hidden costs. At YouVersion, we do what we do because God’s Word has the power to transform lives. We hope that engaging with God’s Word through the Bible App has drawn you closer to Him. We’d encourage you to take another step in your journey:

Help other people share in that same experience by giving to YouVersion.

Give

To give directly, inside the Bible App: Tap More, About, Donate.


Help others in your YouVersion community.

Volunteering is another way you can participate in YouVersion’s mission. Around the world, people from all walks of life are helping others engage with the Bible: by helping us localize the Bible App into their language, by providing technical support to other Bible App users, and by helping our communications team review and manage content. You can help, too. All you need is an Internet connection, a little time, and a passion for using your gifts to serve others. Learn more:
