Kids' Advent Reading Plan
Kids' Advent Reading Plan:
Jesus Storybook Bible
Advent is a season of anticipation and preparation. The word advent comes from the Latin adventus, which means coming. We wait with anticipation as we prepare to celebrate Christmas. As we wait, we prepare our hearts for the coming of Christ. We have a lot to be excited about. During this season we are celebrating that Jesus has come, and He will, finally, one day come again!
Cretaing a routine and being creative can add great depth to family traditions and help plant and water the seed of the Gospel in our children's hearts, as well as our own. This plan uses one of our favorite children's Bibles, the Jesus Storybook Bible. If you don't have this great resource, we would love to give your family one as a gift. Ask a Centerpoint Kids volunteer on a Sunday morning to get you one.
Choose a specific time each night to read the story and discuss it together. Pray that God would engage your hearts in excitement to receive the greatest gift of the season, His Son.
