Take back Advent for your Family

In the midst of the rush of Christmas, amplified by the challenges of this year, we invite families to come together this Advent and prepare for the coming of Jesus at Christmas.

Why? Because the rituals and memories you make now will help you grow as family and a household of faith.

Did you know?


Of children report that their father or mother set examples for them and are spiritual coaches*


Of households who engage in faith sharing report sharing a meal and tv time together*


Of young people report having 3 or fewer meaningful interactions on a typical day


*Households of Faith (Barna Group, 2017)

Make this Advent different

Below, you will find materials to help you develop family rituals at home including: praying, preparing a meal, watching a family movie, and sharing discussion. These can be done in any order.

Additionally, learn more about Advent and visit our resource library on the menu above.


We invite you to come together throughout Advent, make new family memories, and invite Christ into your home this season!
