NEW 2018 Advent Calendar for Families
Advent is almost here! My one page Advent Calendar was a big hit last year so I've updated it for this year adding in the appropriate lectionary texts. This is a one page, one sided pdf in both color and black/white ready to hang in your home or printed out to give to the families at your church. Would be fun to include this at an Advent workshop, Advent in a Bag/Box, emailed in a digital newsletter, or hung on your wall at home. This simple Advent Calendar encourages acts of kindness, scripture reading, prayer, new traditions, and a section for family goals. What do you want your family to feel, participate in, and accomplish this season?
You might also be interested in making your own Nativity Set (click on the picture to go to the nativity blocks). These are great to make as a family with simple supplies like wood, glue, and felt. I give you complete instructions with templates for each character of the nativity scene. These would also be great for making at church during a Christmas or Advent workshop. They look great displayed on a mantel.
Lots more Advent and Christmas ideas over on the PrayerLights YouTube channel for celebrating and observing in home and church ministry.
