Advent In A BoxHelp Your Family Prepare for Christmas
Thank you for using our Advent in a Box resource. You have decided to invest in the faith life of your children this Advent season! Thank you for making Jesus a priority in your family and home!
What is Advent? The season of Advent lasts for four Sundays leading up to Christmas. \ We think of Advent as a season of waiting. From a Latin word that means “coming,” Advent is a time of preparation for the coming of Jesus! The season of Advent is a time when we pray for God’s presence with us each day, and we prepare our hearts to celebrate that Jesus was born for us!
First, I want to say YOU ROCK! You’ve decided to make faith formation a priority for your family this Advent season. Way to go! Even if you don’t do every activity or follow the directions exactly, please be encouraged: God will bless your efforts! Every little bit counts. Any amount of reading Scripture, saying a prayer, listening to worship music, or talking about Jesus in your home is a #WIN !
Secondly, this box is designed around the theme of Immanuel: God with us – which is also the theme of our Advent worship series here at Holy Cross Lutheran Church. I invite you to worship with us, in person or online!
My prayer is that this resource blesses your family! Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any issues or questions – OR just to share about your experience! Please share photos by emailing me or by posting them with #HCLCAdventBox
I am praying and rooting for you!
In the joy of Jesus our Immanuel,
Hannah Lang, Director of Children’s & Family Ministry
