Reply to ""Home for the Haggadah" this Advent ~ an at-home special meal and celebration; plus resources for teaching about Hanukkah"

On a "meal-related" note...

GenOn Ministries' (the LOGOS fellowship people) have a set of Advent meal lesson plans for children and families titled:

Guests at Our Tables: Celebrating Advent During a Pandemic

With minor adaptations, the celebrations could work well at home—either gathering their own supplies or having a church leader create pick-up kits for them. Each celebration stands alone and is sold separately. The resource is downloadable so can be emailed to all in the church. See the list of what's in each lesson below.

The introduction and the Eating and Playing Together sessions of “Saint Andrew” are available as a sample of the series. Attached to this post at Rotation is part of the St Andrew's meal plan. Click the image to enlarge it:
