Insight from a Children's Pastor & Awana Commander

What is Advent?

Growing up, I attended a church who regularly had an advent wreath set up the weeks prior to Christmas. When I switched churches, and denominations, the advent wreath “disappeared” and I never heard of the advent season again. I knew about it, but I had really forgotten what is was and why it was observed.

Whether you know what advent is or not, the folks at “What’s in the Bible?” have come up with a wonderful resource called “Everyday Emmanuel”.

What is Everyday Emmanuel? It’s a fun, easy-to-use family Christmas Countdown
experience designed to help families make the most of Christmas and better
understand the true meaning of the season.

It explains what advent is along with other big questions about Christmas. It has weekly devotionals that follow the advent season and it encourages you (and shows you how) to make a countdown calendar to Christmas with daily activities for your family.

This is an excellent tool to use to help your family have an intentional time together each day to focus on Him.

The folks at What’s in the Bible have given me a coupon that you can use to purchase Everyday Emmanuel bundled with the DVD “Why do we call it Christmas?” for 50% off.
