Advent in a Box

We are so excited to journey through Advent with you. Advent in a Box is an innovative downloadable resource for your church filled with activities and devotions to help your families celebrate Advent together.

With this downloadable resource, your church will create pizza boxes filled with all-age devotions and activities to distribute to families to help them celebrate Advent at home. Everything a family needs to do the activities will be in the box (aside from normal household supplies like markers and tape). We have created the devotions and activities for you. You will need to print the materials, buy the supplies, and pack your boxes. The cost to buy the needed supplies to complete the boxes will be under $5 per box. Since supplies are purchased in bulk, the price will vary depending on how many boxes you are making. 

Advent is also a great time to consider how you can reach out into your community. Consider making extra boxes and challenge each family in your faith community to give away at least one box to a friend or neighbor!

This year we are offering 2 unique versions of Advent in a Box. The scope, sequence and samples of each version are listed below. Wondering how to decide which version is right for you? Read more here.
