All God's Children: The Church Family Gathers for Advent (God's Messengers)
All God's Children: The Church Family Gathers for Advent is designed to gather generations to learn and grow together, bridging the gaps in our church experience. Events are planned for a minimum of two hours, and move in a relaxed and unhurried pace, where the emphasis is on being together in community. Gatherings includes four activities: Eating Together (with menu, table decorations and prayer), Playing Together (with crafts, games, and other fun activities), Studying God's Word Together (with Scripture, wondering questions, and a reflective art activity) and Praying Together (with litany, music, sharing, and prayer).
God's Messengers explores God's directions for people in the Nativity story, and the ways the directions were delivered to them through angels, the Holy Spirit, and a dream. Use God's Messengers for Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany, or for any study of angels and the Holy Spirit. Sessions:
