Hope, love, joy, and peace are a few of the good gifts God has given to us. During Advent, we celebrate Jesus’ coming to earth as a baby, making the way for these gifts to be experienced. Our prayer is that your family can use this guide to remember and celebrate Jesus’ birth and the hope and joy He offers.
Each week is divided into sections to guide your family time. Start out by opening your Bibles together as a family and reading the suggested verses. Then use the Explain section to lead your family to talk about the passages. Pray together as a family. If time allows, have each family member participate in the Family Activity, then Sing a Christmas carol together. The Further Bible Reading verses are provided for family reading throughout the week.
Use these devotions, activities, and worship songs to help your family rest in the hope, love, peace, and joy that only Jesus can bring. He is the gift we proclaim. Let’s celebrate!
Every Sunday during morning Worship
Glen Lake Church has a nursery staffed with loving volunteers who will care for your children while you worship.
Please be sure to stop at the Check-In Counter with your child before the service. Parents have the option of checking their child in before the service starts, or bringing their child to the nursery at any point during the service.
Every Sunday during morning worship
On Sundays, after we are done singing, kids have the option of attending Sunday School where they will hear a gospel message designed just for them! In addition they will spend time doing crafts and other activities. After the service is over, parents can pick up their kids near the Fellowship Hall.
Wednesdays after school from 3:30-5:30 PM
FW Friends is an after school program designed for our kindergarten through 6th grade kids in mind. Our purpose is to introduce kids to the bible story while creating a space where they feel safe and a sense of belonging. Kids are dropped off at Glen Lake Church for a fun time of singing, games, crafts, snacks, and learning about Jesus. If you have questions, contact our Church Office Administrator.
*Note: Fall 2020 will be done ONLINE due to COVID-19. See below for details.
