In person classes are canceled until at least January 6th. Please pick up your Advent
kits from the Church Hall some time between November 22nd and November 29th.
Families will be creating a Jesse Tree together. Use the items in your packet, that will be available to pick up this Sunday, November 22nd, to create your tree. The packet can be picked up from the Church Hall. They will be in a basket labeled "Pre-K - 6th." Please take 1 per Family. Sign the sheet so that I know you have picked it up. I will leave the basket throughout the week, through November 29th, if you are not able to be here on Sunday.
Prepare to add an ornament each day of December leading up to Christmas. Every Sunday, starting November 29th, you will receive an email. This email will walk you through what to do each day of that week to add your ornaments to the Jesse Tree. There will be a short Bible reading and short reflection each day as well. An Advent calendar will also be included with ideas for activities each day. There may occasionally be additional activities throughout the month to help your family prepare for Christmas.
7th through 10th graders will be responsible for making an Advent wreath and leading their family in an Advent wreath devotion each day of Advent. Instructions will be in the packet you will receive. Starting Sunday November 22nd, packets will be available in the church hall in a basket labeled "7th-10th." Please take 1 per family. Sign the sheet so that I know you picked it up.
You will receive an email each Sunday of Advent (starting November 29th). This will walk you through what to do each day for that week. Each week will include a video, and each day will include a Bible verse, reflection, Advent action, and prayer. Use these to lead your family in lighting the advent wreath each day.
