The church divides the year into different seasons that emphasize the life of Christ and the life of the church. Beginning on Sunday, November 27, 2022, we will enter the season of the church year called Advent. Advent is the season of preparation and anticipation leading up to Christmas, and continuing to Epiphany January 6, 2023.
SEEK GOD: • Pray for the Holy Spirit to work in the heart of your friend. • Pray for the Holy Spirit to bless all interactions with your friends and family.
BE CREATIVE: • Exchange stories of family Christmas traditions. You’ll learn about others’ current spiritual situation and be able to share what Jesus means to you. • Invite your friends to make new traditions this year, especially if the Christmas season is stressful or depressing. Invite them to read the devotions with you, go to Advent services, or participate in a servant event. • Bring your friend or family member to help work at a church activity before Christmas. Getting to know people in a nonthreatening way makes them more likely to attend future worship.
FOLLOW UP: Devotions from Lutheran Hour Ministries can help keep your faith conversations going. Read, listen, e-mail, or print at lhm.org/advent.
“The world may have changed, but the power of the laity remains strong today as the Int’l LLL/LHM continues to move forward by adapting with the times to remain a leading force for providing the Gospel message to others. Since our founding, we have repeatedly faced the learning curve of how to best present the Gospel to new generations using new technologies, and throughout that history we have seen examples of god’s providence, power and protection!...” -Kurt Buchholz, President & CEO
This program focused on providing students and famlies with an inside look at the ministry and Gospel outreach happening in each country with fun glimpses into the culture of that region.
Created in partnership with Group Publishing, a trusted leader in innovative children’s ministry resources, the updated curriculum will engage students with educational objectives and interactive resources geared towards expanding their perceptions of global ministry.
“Our objective for this new curriculum is to help students understand the value of differing cultures and how the Gospel is at work around the globe,” says Ashley Bayless, LHM’s Curriculum Development Manager.
Gospel Adventures is available for free to Christian schools across the U.S., including home school families.
Educators and parents who experienced previous online mission trips will discover expanded materials for classroom use, in addition to an online multimedia experience.
