This Week in Sunday School -
Theme - What is Advent?
Littles - Sunday, Dec. 1st, is the first Sunday of Advent this year. Since we won’t have Sunday School that day due to a special baptism and reception into the church, today our Littles talked about the meaning of Advent. The season of Advent is the beginning of the church year. “Advent” means “the coming.” The first Sunday of Advent is always 4 Sundays before Christmas. During Advent we are preparing for the birth of Christ and we anticipate his second coming. The color for Advent is usually either purple (for royalty) or blue (for peace). We also talked about the things we do in our homes to help get ready for Christmas.
Craft/Activity - We made an Advent Countdown Chain. BEGINNING NEXT SUNDAY, DEC. 1st, each day during Advent, your child can take a link off the chain and do whatever task is suggested on that link, or you can come up with a task on your own. We hope this will help them to keep the spirit of the season, keep God and Jesus in their thoughts, and help them countdown to Christmas!
