Family Advent Guide
Throughout the month of December, we will be celebrating Advent and lighting a new candle each Sunday at the beginning of our worship service. Help your family understand a little more about why we are doing this and what this all has to do with Christmas.

Hope, love, joy and peace are a few of the good gifts God has given to us.
During Advent, we celebrate Jesus’ coming to earth as a baby, making the way for these gifts to be experienced. Our prayer is that your family can use this guide to remember and celebrate Jesus’ birth and the hope and joy He offers.
Each week is divided into sections to guide your family time. Start out by opening your Bibles together as a family and reading the suggested verses.
Then use the Discuss section to lead your family to talk about the passages.
Pray together as a family. If time allows, have each family member participate in the Family Activity, then sing a Christmas carol together. The Further Reading verses are provided for family reading throughout the following week.
Use these devotions, activities, and worship songs to help your family rest in the hope, love, peace, and joy that only Jesus can bring. He is the gift we proclaim. Let’s celebrate!
