A Family Christmas Experience

Christmas is all about family and A Family Christmas Experience is a meaningful worship experience for families during the Advent season. It needs little set up and supplies and once you download the resources you will be good to go!

This experience consists of three family-friendly stations that engage families in thinking about Jesus in our everyday activities of life, sharing love and gratitude with others, and considering what we should give Jesus for Christmas.

Besides the space to conduct the experience and some tables, chairs, and the downloaded resources, the supplies you will need are:

  • Colored markers
  • Tape dispensers
  • Pens
  • Wrapping paper
  • Ribbon
  • Twine
  • Wooden stars (like attached link)

Visions of Christmas

Read More

Once again, we will hear the Christmas account, and we will visualize this familiar happening.  We all have in our mind’s eye what the annunciation, trip to Bethlehem, birth in a rustic stable, visit of the Magi, and encounter with Simeon and Anna look like.  What if we stretch our imagination and experience what others see?

Visio Divino is a spiritual discipline that makes use of art as a medium for spiritual transformation. This practice invites you to see and explore the entirety of an image in God’s presence and go beyond your simple first and second impressions to a deeper place where you can be surprised by God. 

Over the next twenty-five days of December, the Spiritual Life Development Department is inviting you to travel through some of these well-read happenings of the birth of the Savior of the world from the eyes of numerous artists that will include ancient classics to modern renderings. 

Do you have a prayer request?

We would love to pray for you.
