Advent Conspiracy 2018

Do the words “holiday season” bring more dread than peace these days? Even as Christians it’s easy to lose the awe and wonder that we want to experience at Advent given the pressures of twenty-first century life.

Join SPSS on this adventure through Advent to take time to worship fully, spend less, give more, and love all. You can take part whether you are local or halfway around the world, whether you’re doing this with a family including children or just you, whether you grew up with “churchy” Christmas or if the very idea of Advent and a religious Christmas celebration is new to you.

Download a Advent Bingo Calendar for family-friendly activities to enjoy over the Advent Season of December 2 to December 24, get the list of daily Advent Conspiracy Bible Readings for 2018 for your Advent devotional, and scroll down to see the weekly devotional reflections to help you slow down and worship full, spend less, give more, and love all! Check back through December for more materials, updates, and ideas.
