One of the most significant things a family can do in December is to be intentional about finding time every day to think about the true meaning of Christmas. The Advent Event is a fun, easy, and enriching family activity to help focus attention on the event of the birth of Jesus while discovering the big picture of God's plan throughout the entire Bible. Kids of all ages will enjoy the craft, stories, sounds and motions that walk throughout the whole bible, with special emphasis on Christmas day.
Just 15 Minutes Each Day in December Can
Build a Lifetime of Memories.
The Full Story of Scripture
The Advent Event is about more than Christmas day. It is a walk though many well know and theologically important stories of the Bible that help to teach children about the character of God and the unfolding story of redemption.
The Meaning of Christmas
The Advent Event spends several days leading up to Christmas telling the different aspects of the Christmas story, punctuating the special event of the greatest gift mankind has ever received, the perfect Lamb of God in the baby Jesus.
Memories to Cherish
With all of the busyness of everyday life, capturing special moments can be so important to the family. The Advent Event is designed for parents to set aside special time with their kids in each day December to learn, sing, laugh, and enjoy.
How The Advent Event Works
- Hang a string or yarn to hold the paper ornaments.
- Color and cut out the thirty-one Advent Event ornaments.
- Each day in December, hang that day's ornament and read the suggested Bible passage.
- Learn and practice the hand motion for the lesson of the day.

- If you want, sing a few carols and pray as a family.
...and it continues until New Years Eve
