Devotional and Giving Opportunities for Families

 

Devotional Resources for Families:

 

The Jesse Tree (free)

A Jesse Tree is a centuries-old way of illustrating how God’s story leads to Jesus. A series of ornaments show symbols that represent important people and events in God’s Big Story. Each day in Advent you hang another symbol on a tree and explore the story behind it through devotional readings and activities.
