Nov 26: Advent Project Intro

FunDay School Advent Project

FunDay Schoolers during Advent will be participating in an Advent Project to accompany their daily readings from the Ann Voskamp Unwrapping the Greatest Gift Family Devotional book.


Each week in December, the kids will be doing metal rubbings to create ornaments for a Jesse Tree. The intention is for each family to have one set of 24 ornaments. The purpose of this project is two-fold - the first is to provide each family with a ornament collection they can use year after year as they journey through advent together. The second is to provide our elementary students with a calming, meditative craft that emphasizes patience and concentration during Advent.


Special thanks to the McKenzie family for sponsoring our Advent Project this year.
