At-home Advent Resources for all!

Advent - Nov 28th through December 25th

“Do Not Be Afraid”is a digital pack that includes a variety of resources for you to use at home during Advent. You can use as many or as few as you would like! We are unable to share it publicly, so please follow this link to request your digital pack.

In each week’s folder you will find…

Advent Calendar of Simple Activities: Print this out and spend a few minutes each day doing the activity listed as we countdown to Christmas. Once per week the “activity” is to do the family pack or adult devotional. This resource includes a colorful visual calendar (or a fill-in-the color yourself one) as well as a list of activities for each day.

Family Activity Pack: This is a weekly resource geared for families with children at home. There is a reflection on a bible story, simple yet beautiful craft, and a coloring page. While it’s designed for children, those who are young at heart and looking for additional resources would also appreciate this. Coloring utensils, scissors, glue, and tape may be needed.

Advent Devotional: This is a weekly resource geared toward youth and adults (great for adults without kids) and goes into each week’s story in depth and provides some questions for discussion and reflection. Beautifully written and has space for coloring, drawing, and doodling too so you’ll want to have writing or coloring utensils handy!

Carseat Drive 2021.001.jpeg

Christmas Carseat Drive

through January 2nd

For the next few weeks we will be collecting donations of both unused car seats and financial donations to help World Relief and Catholic Family Center. December will be a busy month of refugee settlement here in Rochester and this was a need they expressed for incoming families. 

Please bring purchased car seats of varying sizes to the church foyer in the designated area by January 2 or donate here (link to come.) Thanks for helping to welcome new families to our city during this holiday season!
