Free Stuff Fridays

Free Stuff Fridays

It’s Friday, again and already. Is it just me, or does the pace of life increase close to the end of the year? I know that if I stop to blink it will be December. This week’s sponsor is already thinking about Christmas. Here is what The Good Book Company says…

In the rush of the modern holiday season, it’s easy to lose sight of what Christmas is really all about. That’s why our range of resources seeks to put the focus back where it belongs - on the birth of the Lord Jesus.

AdventTo do that The Good Book Company is giving away 5 Christmas Resource Packs. Each winner will receive something for himself or herself and something to give away that will hopefully bring the light of the Gospel into several more homes this Christmas.

A pack of 3 Advent Calendars - These unique Advent Calendar Packs help families to read two or three verses from the Bible each day, discuss some simple questions and then pray together.

One Day WondersBible activity events for children and families - If you’re planning on running an event for children and families this Christmas, look no further! One Day Wonders will give you all the ideas you need to run a Christmas event with ideas for prizes, games, crafts, drama, quizzes, Bible stories and food! Ideal for engaging the kids in your church - as well as reaching out into the wider community - with the real meaning of Christmas.

Tracts10 Pack of Christmas Tracts - Christmas is a time for presents. It’s great fun giving and getting gifts. But what’s the best present of all? The holiday is also a time filled with false icons such as reindeer, jolly elves, the ever-elusive perfect family celebration. But what is the true message of Christmas? Use these great tools to share the truth of the Gospel with adults and kids alike. The winner gets a 10 pack of both of these helpful tracts. Give them away in Christmas cards, at carol services or to friends and family as stocking stuffers.

Finally, a 3 book set by Tim Chester to enjoy as you sit by the fire and catch up on some reading this holiday season. Tim Chester, author of Gospel Centred Life and Total Church has written these helpful tools on the Bible, the Family and the Trinity. This last book has not yet been released in the North America so you are getting a sneak peak!
