Get Started with the December Ideas
Nurturing Faith in Christ
Be sure to use an advent devotion throughout the season. Involve your family and discuss each day’s reading together.
Making Our Faith Meaningful
Sponsor a parents’ night out so that parents are able to do some Christmas shopping or decorating without little ones underfoot. Be sure to have licensed/certified babysitters on hand. EXTRA CREDIT: Involve the youth from the congregation in entertaining the children.
Provide guidance to families on how to keep "CHRIST" in "CHRISTmas", to slow down, and focus on what's important for children to learn. One idea is to make an Advent Wreath and use it as the focal point for Advent devotions
