Activity Sheets (January 17th)
The Jesse Tree is a 24-day practice that you can use to prepare for the celebration of Christ’s birth at Christmas. In this way, it helps us enter more fully into the Church season of Advent which anticipates the coming of Jesus and this season of expectation. The Jesse Tree provides us with a tangible way to countdown and look towards Jesus’ coming through the stories of the Old Testament. Click on the title link above for more information.
Kids Virtual Advent Pageant
We will be showing a fun kid's Virtual Advent Pageant on Sunday, Dec. 13th at the end of our Sunday at-home worship stream. Be sure to tune in.
Since we're not able to be together this Advent season (in the same way we have in previous seasons), we're providing a way for each household to participate in the lighting of the Advent wreath each Sunday over the next four weeks from your own home.
