Words of Hope Advent Calendar

Count down to Christmas with purpose.

Every year, Rev. Lou Lotz and his wife would make an Advent activity calendar for their kids, to help them wait well for Christmas. This year, he has made one for you! Over the month of December, we offer a Bible reading and short activity for each day—acts of service, crafts, fun, and reflection. Many are common December activities, but we invite you to do each activity intentionally, filling your life and others with the joy of our Savior.

This devotional series is available in two matching versions: one for young families, and one for older children and adults. Each day’s Bible reading is the same, with the same ideas and similar activities designed to guide your devotional time for the month.
