Our Connection Matters: Advent Resources

10/7/2021

'Tis the season...almost! Sunday, November 28th marks the beginning of Advent - just 7 weeks away! As we prepare to journey through the season, we hope the resources provided in this edition will help jumpstart your planning and give you fresh ideas. As you begin preparations for the Advent season, consider the following resources for new ideas. 

Nurture: 

Outreach: 

  • 4 Great Advent Outreach Ideas

  • Christmas is not your Birthday - Pastor Mike Slaughter inspires readers to approach Christmas differently, and be transformed in the process.

  • Creative Christmas Outreach - ways to engage your congregation in fun, meaningful efforts that will extend a personal word of welcome to people in your community who are searching for connection.

  • Giving Tuesday - November 30 - a global generosity movement unleashing the power of radical generosity. GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Since then, it has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
