The WE Advent program gathers the entire church - across generations - for one fun event to prepare for the coming of Jesus. People of all ages work together to create a Jesse tree display that shows God's plan of salvation. The church first gathers for a meal to build community and talk about waiting for Christmas to come. Second, everyone learns from either a short 3-person drama or participates in a responsive reading before each table group studies and creates their own Jesse tree symbols. Finally, the event closes with everyone presenting their Jesse tree hanging symbols, praising God in song, and departing with take-home devotions (reproducible). Additionally, a bonus event - People of Faith - based on Hebrews 11 can be used any time of the year to explore what it means to be part of the family of faith. Plan 2+ hours when including the meal; if serving dessert only or snacks, then plan approximately 1.5 hours for the Advent event. The Expectations Advent Event CD includes Getting Started, Reproducibles & PowerPoints, plus Promotional Recources.
