Advent – Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love
Over the last few weeks, 6th grade Bible students have focused on Advent and the themes of Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love. They’ve dug deep into God’s Word and have reflected on various aspects of this Christmas season. During the week on hope, students considered how Mary may have felt; perhaps she was uncertain of what was to come or what others would think of her. Students were prompted to create a “Box of Peace” to send to Mary to comfort her when she may have felt worried and anxious. Ultimately, students uncovered God’s truths of finding hope when feeling hopeless, attaining peace when feeling worried, how to share the joy found in Christ, and how God sets an example of having unconditional love for each and every one of us.
