The "Advent Hidden Treasures" Edition

November 2019 ~ Enews

We are ALWAYS adding new ideas and improving old ones in our forums.  From idea sparks to lessons on fire with creativity, we hope you'll find your inspiration and share your ideas with us.

Seven "Hidden Treasures" from our Advent Forum

And more where these are found!

  1. A "biblical" Advent wreath inspired by scripture, not tradition.

  2. Jesse Tree ideas and a fun and creative way to read Matthew 1's Geneology of Jesus in class or worship.

  3. Frankincense is discussed and ideas for using it can be found in our Zechariah in the Temple topic, and in this Magi forum topic.

  4. Moana and the Magi Know the Way - a YouTube video mashup of one great song and two great stories. Supporting members can also read the discussion guide and lesson that uses the video clip. "At night we name every star, we know who we are."

  5. "The Story of the Maccabee's" ...the Bible story of the origins of Hanukkah: Festival of Light, lessons and good video.

  6. Four Fun Advent Children's Sermons (which could be part of an Advent lesson too).

  7. Did you see this one?   "Different and Fun Ideas for Advent."  It includes a Bethlehem Dinner Theater, Advent Candles in the classroom, and a Christmas skit concept called "The Last Doorbell."  Add Yours!
