We’ve got some time till Advent since it doesn’t start till Dec. 2nd this year. You can still make these happen:
Idea 1) Creative Online Advent Devo’s: Set up a FB page where students and adults in your ministry are assigned a day in Advent to post their fave Christmas picture of themselves, a Bible verse and make a comment or two. Send out the link to EVERYONE to check back each day for a countdown to Christmas.
Idea 2) Interactive Advent Calendar:
Assign students and adults in your ministry a different Advent scripture and a day # of Advent. Give them each a poster board and lots of decorating materials. Have each person make a giant card with their day # on the front and their scripture on the inside.
On the Sunday before Christmas, have all the students/adults wear holiday clothing and line up in rows in the Fellowship Hall or out on the church lawn. Have the rows take the shape of a Christmas tree, each student/adult holding their own giant card. Spread out so church people can walk through the Advent Tree “opening” each card as they wish.
Oops! Time’s up! I bet you can take these ideas and make them even better.
