Advent: Week 4

Fourth Sunday: December 23, 2012 - The "Angels Candle" (third purple candle) is lit and represents peace.

Have whoever is lighting the candle read:
  • "We light this candle in peace; Jesus is our peace."
Ask:
  • When you think of the word peace, what is the first thing that comes to mind?
  • What would it mean for the world to have peace?
  • Name one thing that disturbs your peace and why?
Read:
  • 2 Thessalonians 3:16
Activity:
Make a Peace Dove Ornament
Supplies needed:
  •     Stiff paper/Cardstock (1 piece)
  •     Regular paper (1 piece)
  •     Scissors
  •     Pencil
  •     String
  •     Clear tape
  •     Optional: markers, glue, glitter
Instructions:
  • Draw the shape of a bird's body on stiff paper.
  • Cut out the bird and cut two slits in the body (along the dotted lines).

  • Cut a piece of paper in half.
  • Fold each piece like an accordion.





  • Insert the folded paper (wings and tail feathers) into the slits in the bird's body. Secure them to the body with clear tape. Tape the ends of the tail feathers together (making a fan shape).
  • Draw eyes on the dove. Tape some string to the body of the dove (for hanging it up).
  • Optional: decorate the dove with markers or glitter. 




Blow out the candles!
