Kid’s Christmas Countdown

Advent At Home for Families- Weekly Leading up to Christmas

This year, we have a new way for families to celebrate the season of Advent at home! These take-home kits come with a video message on the theme of the week and will have all the supplies you need for craft as well. You can find the links to each video message on this page below- they will be posted every Sunday morning during Advent. There are written versions of the message in each kit if you’d prefer that to a YouTube video.

Kits will be available in the Church all week long- so whether you worship with us in person or from home, you’ll be able to safely stop by and grab that week’s kit. If you’d like to pick up all 4 kits at once or if you need them dropped off at your residence or mailed to you, please contact Jenna Link at

Who are the kits for? – These kits are for any and every child, whether or not they are a member of Riverside. If you are wondering if you still count as a child- you do! Please feel free to grab some for your grandchildren, or one for your neighbor’s kid. If we run out let me know and I will order more supplies and get them to you as quickly as possible. I want every child to experience the joy of the season of Advent.


When the videos are live, there will be a link below next to each one. The link will take you to the video which has been posted on RUMC Youth’s YouTube Channel. This is a different channel then Riverside’s main channel where the worship services are posted.
