KIDS ZONE FAMILY RESOURCE – ADVENT CALENDAR

Advent begins on Sunday, November 29. the word Advent simply means “coming” or “arrival”. The season of Advent is a time for us to slow down, and take time to reflect on how incredible the coming of Jesus truly is! We hope our families will use this Advent Calendar to spark a faith discussion with your children this holiday season as we wait the arrival of Christmas Day.

This year’s Advent Calendar is full of fun, easy, covid-friendly ideas for you to do together. Take a picture of you and your kiddos participating in an idea on the calendar and share those with the Kids Zone Team. Since we can’t be together in person, we would love to see your photos. Don’t forget to read the narrative of Jesus’ birth highlighted each day.

You can download the Advent Calendar using the green button to the left.


EVENING VESPERS FOR ADVENT

As the days grow shorter and the nights get colder, we feel winter setting in. We long for connection and community now more than ever. In the church these weeks leading up to Christmas make up the season of Advent, a season of waiting. Join us as we gather each weeknight for a time of reflection on the day and remember together the hope, love, joy, and peace that is ours because of Christ with us–Emmanuel.

You can watch each evening Monday-Friday beginning November 30, or catch up on what you have missed by following our YouTube channel at the button below.

His parents gave him the name Jesus. But the prophets, the shepherds, the wise men, and the angels addressed him by other names. They called him Lord, Messiah, Savior, Emmanuel, Light of the World, and Word Made Flesh.
