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.

No Minecraft?

That’s ok! Even if you don’t have Minecraft you can still go through each daily study & Bible reading.

Minecraft Advent Activities

How it works:

This is a self paced study, and students will receive a lesson plan to go with the class. Students with watch the story of Jesus unfold within the Christmas story. Included will be the following:

Daily Scripture reading and lesson
Minecraft Building Project each day which relates to the lesson

Following are the details:

Study will take place starting on Tuesday, 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.  The study is TOTALLY free, but you do need to register. Click the link below to sign up.



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):

Christmas Cash Giveaway

Now, for another little something special for you guys!  This year has been pretty intense for many families. The struggle is real and there are many that are concerned about the bills, the presents, the tree, and even the food itself for Christmas dinner.  Please know that we are right there with you and praying for all during this interesting year.

Also, remember that there is a hope that can be found only in Christ and another hope that can be found in help that others offer. This help can come in various forms and may it be found in a quiet moment, a shared laugh, or a restful night. This year I have teamed up with a group of amazing bloggers that want to also be a part of the help during this Christmas season.

We are so excited to share that we are going to be able to bless ONE family this year with $500 in PayPal cash. Together we pray that this will help with any of the worries and anxiousness of the season. All of us are wishing for a wonderful Christmas filled with blessings and sweet memories for you and your family!
