October 2021: Your October Resources are Here!
October is here and with it comes new resources for you! This month on the blog and podcast, we tackle the topic of What To Do When People *Leave*: Families, Volunteers, & Staff.
For years, our members have asked for an Advent Devotional for Families, so this month, we delivered! Our regular blog contributors, Amy Diller and Nick Mobley collaborated to create the Kids and Youth Edition. To learn more, just keep scrolling!
We hope you enjoy this month’s content. As always, it’s our pleasure to partner with you.

3 Simple Ways Symbols Help You Lead Your Teen Spiritually
The Bible is full of stories where people used powerful symbols, an object with an attached significance, to help memorialize an important “God-event” in their lives. In our new parent video, we’d like to share with you a creative and significant way to teach parents to use biblical memorials to help their teenager remember the activity of God in their life and the lives of their families.
3 Simple Ways Symbols Help You Lead Your Child Spiritually
God has made a child’s mind concrete in their thinking, which means that they need to see, hear, and touch something to understand it. So creating symbols that have spiritual meaning is a great way to lead your child spiritually. It sends important messages to their hearts about the things that matter most in life. In our new parent video, we’re going to help you give parents three simple examples of how they can use symbols around the house.
WHAT IS IT?
Advent for Families is a 4-week guide to help families prepare for Christmas.
HOW TO USE IT?
This resource is designed to help you guide the families you serve as they celebrate the season of Advent together. Whether your church observes Advent regularly or it’s the first time you’ve introduced it, we hope the readings and ideas included are a valuable tool as you partner with parents to focus on His coming this Christmas.
