Advent Calendar - Devotions for Your Family


I know many people who were so excited that Christmas was almost here that the decorations came out well before Thanksgiving even hit. While we often make jokes about how Christmas decor shows up in Hobby Lobby in August, the hope that Christmas brings for our world is especially welcome early this year.

One of the projects developed by our Building Boys, Making Men program is a series of Advent Calendar Devotions. We hope these 25 devotions make this a year even more focused on the gift God sent to us on Christmas.

Each devotion includes:

  • A short Bible passage to read today (usually about 5-12 verses)
  • An explanation of what we’re focusing on in those verses
  • A couple questions you can discuss as a family
  • A challenge—a simple way for your children to start living out what you discussed

You can view the devotions on the website or download them as a PDF.
