Happy Advent, friends.
This year, Episcopal Relief & Development is proud to present new Advent resources from ONE THOUSAND DAYS OF LOVE. Click on each tab in the table above to view a different craft idea for each week in Advent. It is encouraged that you use these crafts with those you love. Consider sharing with your community, congregation, family and especially the special children in your life, as you prepare for Christmas. These resources can be used in all different ways. You might choose to use them as a fun project during virtual coffee hour, virtual Sunday School or after dinner with your family each Sunday night leading up to Christmas. As you complete each craft, find an opportunity to talk with others about Episcopal Relief & Development’s important work with children across the globe and appreciate the children in your own life.
View all of the resources from the table, along with the general Advent resources, listed below. The general Advent resources include suggestions for How to Plan an Advent Campaign, an Advent Activities Guide, Gifts for Life brochures with fundraising ideas and a gift selection, and the Advent Calendar. Physical copies of materials are also available through Forward Movement.
This Advent, may you get crafty with those you love and celebrate children near and far as you prepare for Jesus’ birth.
