Christ City Kids Advent Reading Calendar (begins Friday, Dec 1st)

Reading through God’s Big Story at Christmas and seeing how the Bible points to Jesus is such a beautiful way to celebrate the season with your family.  We’ve created an Advent calendar that gives you and your child readings each day leading up to Christmas.  Both of The Jesus Storybook Bible references and scripture references are included which means that whether your kids are younger or older, this reading plan will work for them.  We hope it brings joy to your family as you dig into God’s Word and celebrate the gift of Jesus. 

A PDF of Advent calendar is available in the parent google drive.

Christ City Kids Advent Devotional

This 4 part devotional is a quick little devotional for your family to read through together and provide a focus for the week.  We will be sending each week’s devo through the parent group each Sunday and keeping copies in the parent google drive.  Hardcopies will also be available in the kids ministry welcome area. 

Christ City Kids Conversation Starter Cards

A fun way to bring your family together this season.  These cards feature prayer prompts and this or that questions that are sure to get the conversation (and laughs) going with your family. Available from your child’s Sunday class leader while supplies last.  1 per family.
