At Central Baptist Church, we are excited to present the Family Equipping Guide for Advent 2021 - a unique opportunity for families to engage in meaningful discussions, heartwarming traditions, and spiritual growth during the holiday season.
Embrace the Advent Season
The Advent season marks the beginning of the Christian liturgical year and is a time of both anticipation and preparation for the birth of Jesus Christ. It is a time to reflect on the hope, love, joy, and peace that He brings to our lives.
Discover Rich Traditions
With our Family Equipping Guide, you will explore a variety of Advent traditions that have been passed down through generations. From lighting the Advent wreath and opening the Advent calendar to participating in special prayers and readings, these traditions will create moments of connection and reflection for your entire family.
Light the Advent Wreath
The Advent wreath is a symbol of the changing seasons and the anticipation of Christ's coming. Each week, you and your family will light one of the candles - the first symbolizing hope, the second symbolizing love, the third symbolizing joy, and the fourth symbolizing peace. Together, these candles illuminate the path towards the birth of Jesus.
Open the Advent Calendar
An Advent calendar is a wonderful way to count down the days until Christmas. With our Family Equipping Guide, you will discover a digital Advent calendar filled with daily surprises and activities for your family to enjoy together. From thoughtful acts of kindness to fun crafts and games, this calendar will make each day of the Advent season more memorable and meaningful.
Experience Inspiring Messages
Throughout the Advent season, our church community will come together to share inspiring messages of faith, hope, and love. From engaging sermons during Sunday services to virtual gatherings and online workshops, you will have numerous opportunities to connect with fellow believers and deepen your understanding of the true meaning of Christmas.
Weekly Sermons and Bible Studies
Join us every Sunday as our dedicated pastors deliver powerful sermons that explore the significance of Advent in our lives. Through thought-provoking messages and interactive Bible studies, you will gain fresh insights into the biblical narratives surrounding Jesus' birth and the implications for your own faith journey.
Virtual Gatherings and Workshops
Connect with other families in our community through virtual gatherings and workshops designed to foster meaningful conversations and spiritual growth. From Q&A sessions with church leaders to small group discussions on relevant topics, these opportunities will inspire you to develop a closer relationship with God and each other.
