Christmas Paper Chain: During the last week of November, make an Advent paper chain, each link suggests one activity to do each day leading up to Christmas.

The Christmas Nail Ornament

Provide cookies and hot chocolate after the service. This is a great opportunity to chat with families.

Provide Christmas Activity Books for the children. They can be used as a Christmas gift, in a welcome bag, or used during the Christmas service. Grace4Kids has two different levels which include the gospel throughout Download them here.

Distribute a Christmas Gospel Tract to each child to remind them of the true meaning of Christmas. Download here.

Candy Canes: Hand out Candy Canes and tell the story behind them.

Photo Booth: Provide an opportunity for a family photo. Purchase a vinyl backdrop and allow families to take photos.
