Advent & Christmas Resources

As Christian educators, our passion is to create affordable tools to equip families to live out Deuteronomy 6 in their homes. Our mission is to partner with you, the local church, to send home interactive, fun, and Biblically sound activities to engage families and help them grow in their faith.

Our resources consist of all-age devotions and activities to help families celebrate and prepare at home for the seasons of the church. Churches purchase our resources and then follow the detailed instructions to put together kits to distribute to their faith community.

Coming in October

Advent is an incredibly busy time for both families and churches! Why not try something different this year? Nearly 1,500 years ago the church set aside the days from Christmas to Epiphany for a prolonged and festive celebration of the birth of Jesus! Use our new 12 Days of Christmas Resource to help your families extend their celebration of Christmas, focus on the amazing gifts which God gives us, and consider what gifts we might offer to God. As with all of our resources, the 12 Days of Christmas will include all-age, hands on activities and devotions and detailed instructions for created your kits.

What they’re saying…

Pastor Matt

In my 10+ years of ministry, I have never found something that was so easy and affordable on the church side AND was actually used by families to begin discussions and talk about faith at home… I believe that parents want to talk with their kids about faith but they don’t know where to start…[These resources] give them all the tools, scripts, and resources they need to have deep and meaningful conversations…

The advent in a box quickly became a favorite family activity in our house. As with any step family, we are always looking for ways to connect across the miles. Sharing  box in VA and one in CO afforded us the opportunity to connect across the miles and continue to share our passion for Christ.

I use the Advent box as my daily devotion during the season. The 15 minutes each day gives me time to reflect on peace, joy, hope, so that I am better able to show love to others during this hectic time of year.

Mike Plasters, United Methodist Pastor

These boxes were an instant hit with the families of our church and children’s center.  They served as a way to bring families together during a busy time of the year and helped them focus on the true meaning of Advent and Christmas.  The activities had families talking and thinking about the coming of our Lord.  We will be using them again this year.  What a great way to disciple generations together!

Wendy, parent of a 6th grader

We loved the Advent in a box, and were very excited to open and do the next day.  It is a wonderful family activity during the most wonderful season of the year!

Heidi, mother of three

Our family has used Advent in a Box for the past few Advent seasons. It gives us a time to come together as a family and reflect on the season as well as have some fun together. The projects are easy and we have some wonderful family keepsakes from these boxes.

Lindsey, a Program Director at a United Methodist Church

This is a great tool to reach not only families within the church but also those in the community. I am currently making 200 boxes to share with the church members, children attending our children’s center and some extras for members to share with their friends. We are very excited to be using the Family Ministries Tools Advent in a Box this advent season.

The Episcopal Church in Colorado

This well thought out, creative resource for families provides an easy but enriching process for observing the season of Lent and exploring its themes of temptation, perseverance, repentance, and mercy; and practicing the disciplines of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.

I love how this is so easy for busy families to digest.
