ADVENT In Action Week One

ADVENT In Action Week One

Advent Week One

On coming to the house, they [wise men] saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

We celebrate the coming of Jesus at Christmas, but Jesus is always coming to us. The heart of Jesus is to come and love us, always.

Enjoy this fun way to celebrate Jesus coming to you today and everyday. We encourage kids to reproduce this Jesus Coming activity and add or draw your own pictures next to words that speak to you. Advent week one starts with love from God and Jesus.

❤️“Beloved, let us love one another 1 John 4:7

God helps us to prepare our hearts, minds , bodies, and spirits for celebrating JESUS’ birth in the season of ADVENT. GET READY , ALL SET, now LOVE!

Week 1: “Love one another.”


What’s your very favorite activity, game, outing, or sport!  Perhaps you will invite or encourage someone you have never shared this activity with before. Now write about, draw, or take a picture of you encouraging the team player or  winner of that game you invited them to join you in for the first time. With a mile-long-smile  smile, congratulate him/her by offering a high five, fist bump, or thumbs up! Pray about and think of other ways you can show the love of Christ during these weeks of ADVENT.


“Dear LORD as YOU (we) prepare our hearts for CHRISTmas, help us love  one another, for love  comes from You. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Thank YOU, Father! Amen.”
