Children’s Ministries has three resources for your family this Advent season.

Pick one or use them all – whatever works best for your family!


  1. Illustrated Advent for Families from Illustrated Ministry.

Take time each week during the Advent season to be intentional and focus on your faith.

The stories of Advent are stories for hard times. Jesus was born amid upheaval and historical change and among people who seemed powerless. But when the world feels hopeless, Advent reminds us God is with us.

    • In chaos, God is with us.
    • In suffering, God is with us.
    • In uncertainty, God is with us.
    • In whatever our family endures, God is with us.

This Advent resource invites your family to explore the ways in which Emmanuel, God-with-us, brings hope, peace, joy, and love to your home and community, especially during hard times. Use this Advent guide to center your thoughts on the ever-present hope that sees us through change and challenge. Each week you will explore how the good news of God-with-us changes our perspective and gives us courage for each day. We rejoice in Jesus’ birth because God is with us!


2. Activity Advent: A new take on the Traditional Advent Calendar.

Advent is a time of anticipation for the birth of Jesus. And we know that between work, school, Christmas plays and programs, shopping, and more, it’s hard to keep focused on the real reason for celebrating Christmas. But here’s help!

This fun and simple activity will get your family talking, encouraging each other, having fun, and sharing about Jesus every day during the Advent season!

It includes conversation starters, prayer prompts, and this-or-that fun. Great to do at meals or on the go!


3. Children’s Ministries Facebook Group Posts. Daily scripture and activity prompts from Parent Cue.

Follow along daily, starting Dec 1, to read the story of how God sent joy to the world with the gift of his son, Jesus.

While you’re at it, spread some joy of your on as a family!


We hope these resources help you prepare for Christmas as you journey through this Advent season together, beginning on Nov. 28!
