This year, my Kids Pastor friend from Alaska challenged me to get involved in learning more about ADVENT. The word ADVENT means "COMING" in Latin. Advent is a season of the year that is celebrated by many people in churches all over the world. During ADVENT, people celebrate Jesus' advent (coming) which was his birth. But they also look to and anticipate his second coming.
I have created a Family Advent Calendar for my children's ministry so it could help them become more spiritually closer to God, pray more for others and to think about others around our community.
It's more of a challenge and brings a purpose of why they are following this family calendar.
Here is how it looks like.
