Resources for the Seasons of Advent & Christmas
Acknowledging the reality of fatigue and weariness among leaders and parents, MNO Synod is creating and providing a variety of resources for families and congregations to use during the Season of Advent. We pray these resources will continue to encourage your faith and discipleship, while at the same time strengthening your ministry together as families and congregations.
These resources will be updated and adjusted throughout the seasons of Advent & Christmas. Worship resources and more information can be accessed by emailing the synod office. These resources include:
- Resources for 4 worship services in a variety of formats (sections of worship, transcripts for print/mailing, full services)
- 9 separate lessons & carols (recorded music, reading and reflection) (available on MNO Synod social media)
- Children’s sermon introducing the Advent wreath
- Advent Family Devotions instructions
- Celebrate Advent at Home (additional ideas for families)
- Instructional video for creating an Advent wreath
- Christmas Carol Campfire via Zoom for youth, young adults and families (Dec. 13, 7:00 pm)
- Christmas Eve & Christmas Day worship services
- Services for the 2 Sundays in Christmas
- Check out the list of congregational worship sites to find a worship service in your context.
Watch this post for updates and links to these resources as they become available.
