It is that time of year when we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ during this Christmas season! Some families have an advent calendar, advent wreath, light candles, decorate a Jesse Tree, etc. We will be learning about and participating in Advent this year, but we will be doing it Minecraft style.
How it works:
There will be a short weekly lesson with scripture reading and a Minecraft project for the day that relates to the day’s reading.
Following are the details:
Study will take place starting on Thursday, December 1st. The day’s lesson will be posted each morning. Don’t worry about getting behind or catching up. You can just jump in whenever you get ready. Students will log in to our EDU site to get their lesson and build for the day. The builds will be done on SKrafty in the Advent server.
Our family will be going through this study right along with you guys. If you would like to follow along with something at home, we recommend one of the following (Totally Optional):
