Advent is the season in which we prepare for the coming of Christ.
The season proclaims Christ’s anticipated coming again, as well as the coming of Christ as the infant Savior whose birth we celebrate at Christmas. It emphasizes Christ’s coming, not merely his birth.
This is a time that is not just preparation for Christmas, but also the time of preparation for the second coming of Christ and the inward soul-searching that should mark that preparation. What does this mean for children?
We have compiled resources, discussion topics, and activities that will allow children and families to live into this season of preparation into our 2016 Advent Calendar. The themes of each week follow along with the weekly themes provided by our Advent-Christmas 2016 worship resources.
