Events, resources, and opportunities this Advent
In December, practice daily acts of joy by using one or more Advent Calendar–made for both children and adults. The Children’s Advent calendar is designed for coloring. Each day, children can color in a shape and complete a daily action prompt together with their family. You can pick one up in the church foyer or download/print at home using the link below.
The adult (and teen-friendly) calendar includes daily prompts for practicing joy in a weary world. You can also find these same prompts published daily on South Elkhorn’s Instagram and Facebook pages.
This devotional is designed to help you practice joy in a weary world. Each week offers art, reflections, poetry, and hymns. Journey through these pages at your own pace. This Advent, hold space for acknowledging your weariness, finding joy in connection, allowing yourself to be amazed, singing stories of hope, making room, rooting yourself in ritual, and remembering your belovedness.
You can pick up a hard copy of the Advent Devotional in the church foyer, or you can get a link for an electronic flip-book copy through the church office.
