Advent 2017

Posted November 30 by Kids Ministry

What is Advent?

Advent is the best time of the year! Derived from the Latin word adventus, it most simply means “coming.” Advent is the season where we anticipate the coming of Christ and God’s redemption plan for His people set in motion. This year we’d like to give you the opportunity to walk through the advent season with your kids in a fun and simple way with our Advent Calendar. Beginning December 1 through Christmas Day, you’ll be able to read a small part of the Christmas story, and if you choose, there’s a suggested activity even the younger kids can take part in.

How does it work?

With the exception of week one, each week will follow a Sunday to Saturday format with five weeks total. Provided at the beginning of each week are the Scriptures that will be referenced. This is a great tool to use at the start of the week to see where the story is headed as well as at the end of the week to recap what you’ve learned. Whatever you decide, we hope this provides you with an opportunity to slow down a little as a family this Christmas season and celebrate the birth of our Savior.
