We begin a new series next week called, "Not A Storybook Christmas." We'd like for you and your family to celebrate the coming of Jesus by joining us in a Bible Devotional plan hosted by Youversion, the makers of the Bible App and bible.com.
The reading plan includes questions to engage young children, too.
"The birth of Christ, His advent, marks God's ultimate plan for our redemption. In Christ, we see the fullest picture of God's hope, peace, joy and love. God's Word is the truth by which we know and walk with Him daily. It is our hope that this guide will encourage and facilitate personal time spent in the Word and provide a resource for families with children to do that together." (Plan Description created by 121 Church)
Another tradition to celebrate the coming of Jesus (advent) is to light a candle on each Sunday, beginning Dec 3. You can do this with your family or by yourself.
5 Candles are needed.
Week 1 - Hope
Week 2 - Peace
Week 3 - Joy
Week 4 - Love
Christmas Day - Jesus
Each week, the Bible Devotional Plan will look at each aspect Jesus brings when He came to be with us and be one of us.
