Celebrating Advent at Home

Celebrating Advent at Home

by Zach Taylor

The Advent season is a time when our thoughts turn to decorating the tree, carols, and whether action movies qualify as Christmas movies or not. But, most importantly, it is a time for us to look back and remember the birth of Christ and look forward as we wait with anticipation for the day when Christ will return; when we will dwell in the light of his presence for eternity!

It is our hope that you and your family are able to spend time celebrating Jesus together, and we want to partner with you in that! We invite you to use these Advent calendars as a way to focus your heart and mind on our Savior. Both versions will guide you and your family through the Bible in a way that shows us that all the stories we read are really part of one big story about Jesus, and why he needed to come for us.  

The family Advent calendar includes the option to use The Jesus Storybook Bible. If you do not already have The Jesus Storybook Bible, we would love to give your family a copy as a gift this weekend. Please visit the table in the lobby to pick yours up!

We pray that these resources empower and equip you to take the gospel to your whole family this and every season.
