This Advent season, UMHEF invites you to stay connected to the true meaning of Christmas with a free Advent activity for all ages.

Advent begins Sunday, November 29 and continues through Christmas Day. Learn more about the Advent season by browsing articles at UMC.org.

As our gift to you, our generous and consistent supporters, hard-working students, and faithful friends, we invite you to use this unique printable, color-in Advent wreath to prepare your hearts for the coming of our Savior. As you color in each flame and candle for a different week of Advent we hope it will help you reflect on the season, God’s promises, and Christ’s coming.

Show Off Your Work!

We’d love to see your in-progress and completed candle wreaths. Post a photo of your colored-in candles on social media and tag @umhef or #umhefadvent. Watch, too, for posts on our Facebook page inviting you to share in the comments.
