This topic is for sharing ideas and link to Christian "mission" or service projects to be conducted during the season of Advent by children and/or their families.
The projects should be for children, youth and family, and should not include projects merely seeking monetary donations. (this will exclude 90% of "appeals" and denominational programs!)
You are welcome to describe LOCAL projects unique to your area or church as they may inspire others to do the same in their area. Add photos and links.
You are welcome to share non-denominational or denominational projects which have a mission emphasis but they should be associated with the Advent season in some way.
For example: "Giving Trees" are a popular way many churches encourage members to purchase "presents" for others who are in need. Working with a local agency, the names, sizes, and needs of the recipient are recorded on a tag which is then plucked from a tree by a volunteer.
Children can help create the tree, shop for the needs, collect the offerings, and distribute the offerings. They can also figure out how to raise money to fulfill the needs of someone in need.
