Advent in a Box is a tool for families to use as they journey through the Advent season beginning Sunday, November 29 until Christmas. This year’s box contains a variety of activities and is intended for use at home.
There are 4 weekly activities, one for each week of Advent representing the candles on your Advent Log or Wreath. The last activity is the Birth of Jesus Christmas story.
Each weekly activity includes an introduction, a scripture reading, discussion questions, a secular Christmas Story, a song, an activity, and a prayer. All links to stories and songs can be found conveniently located below on this page.
We encourage you to spend time together during this Advent season and light the candles on your Advent Log or Wreath each week. Consider sharing your highs and lows, along with where you have seen God at work in your life during the day.
If you would like to receive a box with all the materials, please contact the church office at 442-7842.
Our hope is your family experiences Advent and Christmas together in a meaningful way.
Happy Advent & Merry Christmas!
