12 Days

December 26-January 6th are the  “12 Days of Christmas”.

This devotional brochure provides ideas to ponder whether you are alone, a couple or a whole family! 

In Europe in the Middle Ages, Christmas was not one day, but a season of twelve days which began on December 25th and concluded on January 6th, Epiphany, when the Three Wise Men found the Christ Child and worshipped Him.  (Matthew 2:9-11)

Today in Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries January 6th is celebrated as Three Kings Day and children receive presents commemorating the gifts of the Kings brought to Jesus.

Advent Candles

FIVE QUESTIONS OF CHRISTMAS Advent Worship Series –  Each worship outline contains all elements needed for your worship service. The order of each service presented is only a suggestion. No doubt changes will be needed to accommodate the flow and worship style of your corps. The outlines are flexible and allow opportunities to “cut and paste” as needed. If you are blessed with instrumental or vocal music resources, you may find there is more structured material here than needed. It is recommended that the headings of each section of the service be included in the bulletin.

This resource and several other ideas  are available through the USA Eastern Territory

Day at the Beach

Supplies: traditional inflatable beach ball with wedges of colours
Have kids throw/bounce beach balls around the room or outside area, while music is playing. When the music stops, explain what the colours represent and then have kids spend time in prayer, praying for these things. A simple idea to help children focus prayers on others – all you need is a colourful beach ball.

  • Red – Praying for my parents
  • Green – Praying for my school
  • Orange – Praying for my friends
  • Blue – Praying for my neighbourhood
  • Yellow – Praying for my pastors
  • White – Praying for myself

Calendar
Here is a fun suggestions for a parent and teen, or older elementary aged children. Families come prepared with their collection of pictures from a whole year, and spend the evening together creating a family calendar, featuring themselves. Supplies for making the calendar are provided. Families are encouraged to work together at selecting the pictures for each page, and to reminisce while they work. If you have a video camera available, have a camera-person circulating the room, videotaping families explaining why they chose pictures for different pages. Then replay the video during refreshment time. If you do this in the late fall, families can make copies of their calendar for Christmas presents to family and friends.

Rally Day: Use this idea on Rally weekend, and have families make an album of their summer adventures!
