Family Connections Toolkit

Advent Toolkit

Welcome to the new installments of the Conference’s accessible and interactive at-home family faith formation resource!

Our Advent toolkit focuses on the themes of hope, peace, joy and love, with content for home and community practice from the first Sunday of Advent (November 29) through the Sunday after Christmas (December 27). The toolkit will be released electronically in weekly installments (on Wednesdays).

Each toolkit provides a thoughtfully focused and curated collection of video reflections, spiritual practices, service ideas, and creative activities. For Advent, the weekly toolkits will provide a candle lighting ritual for home and a weekly contemplative practice for parents.

Before diving in, we invite you to prepare at home by assembling your own Advent Wreath and reading the Advent Wreath Litany and Prayer Tips from The Ministry Lab’s  Rev. Emily Meyer.
