Carols and Lessons

Devotionals to Prepare Your Heart for Christmas

What would Christmas be without carols to sing? Yet how often do we think about the familiar words we are singing?

This Advent season, prepare your heart for Christmas with the daily devotional series, Carols and Lessons. Modeled after the traditional service of Carols and Lessons, this daily devotional series matches carols with readings from across the Bible. By uncovering the historical and spiritual context in which they were written, Rev. David Bast introduces us to the carols once again.

Each day, you are invited to sing or listen to a carol and read a lesson to help you prepare your heart for Christmas. You will deepen your appreciation for the familiar songs of Christmas, and engage with the full story of the Gospel from Genesis to Revelation.

Included with this series is Carols and Lessons for Kids, a 5-lesson series for young families. Organized around the simple act of setting up a nativity scene, Carols and Lessons for Kids helps parents and teachers share the Christmas story with young children. Each lesson includes a simple and familiar carol to sing or share, a Bible passage focused on the Christmas story, a devotional lesson, and suggested activities. Included in the series is a printable nativity scene to color and set up with your children.
