Watch the Advent Conspiracy teaching videos below – all at once, if you’re ambitious, or one for each week of Advent.

We hope you’ll come away inspired to do good things for others, even as Christ gave of Himself for us.

The young saints in Children’s Chapel have been following the Advent Conspiracy, particularly focusing on the giving to others, in preparation for Christmas this year. After watching a video about the need for access to clean water, the children have decided that they would like to raise money to help provide other children with clean drinking water. The wonderful people working for Advent Conspiracy have connected us with Living Water International to help us in this endeavor. Our children’s ministry would like to invite the congregation to join us in this fundraiser.

If you would like to help our children’s chapel raise money for clean drinking water, there will be a piggy bank in the PLC starting Sunday December 11th and it will stay there until the end of the month.  All donations are welcome.
