Gateway FAMILY

ADVENT BOX // love

December 10-16


For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6

This week of Advent, we celebrate Love. The concept of love is important within the context of Advent and the birth of Jesus Christ. God demonstrated the greatest form of love by sending us His Son.

Christmas Cards to Seniors

Why this Activity?

For the week of love this Advent season, the craft is to colour cards to be mailed out to seniors in our church. Colouring these cards, signing them, and taking the time to mail them (in the pre-addressed envelopes) is an act of showing God’s love to those in our community.

Instructions for Activity:

  1. Take some time to neatly colour/draw on the cards. This can include the front, back, and inside of the card.

  2. Sign your name, including family member’s names, at the bottom of the written note.

  3. Place card in pre-addressed envelope and seal.

  4. Take time as a family to drop off the cards in the mail.
