For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6

✦   ✦   ✦   ✦   ✦

For millennia, Christians around the world have taken the weeks leading up to Christmas, or “Advent,” to prepare their hearts for the coming of the Lord. It is a time to remember, rejoice, and rest in the Savior who came as a baby and will come again. As many events and opportunities restart and reopen around us, we invite you to slow down for a season and spend four weeks rejoicing in our unchanging hope, Jesus.

Advent Devotional

To help you celebrate Advent this year and to encourage you to “prepare him room” in your heart by reflecting on the significance of the coming of the promised Servant, King, and Savior, Redeemer has created an Advent devotional and craft set. 

For each of the four weeks leading up to Christmas, we have included a family devotion and three personal reflections. We recommend finding a regular time each week (eg., after dinner on Saturdays) when you can work through the family devotion with your household. There are three additional reflections which you can do by yourself or with others throughout the week.

Advent Crafts

As you work through the devotions, invite your child(ren) to create the corresponding craft. Once each craft has been created, display them however works best in your home — on your Christmas tree, on your dining table, along a piece of twine, around your doorway, etc. And as the number of crafts grows each week, we hope they serve as a great reminder of how Jesus is the promised Servant, King, and Savior!

Advent Playlist

To help orient your mind and heart toward Christ this season, we’ve created an Advent playlist for you to listen to on Spotify. We hope and pray these songs encourage you and your family throughout the season.
