Box of Joy

Start or Continue a Tradition at your home

For the past 30 years or more , there has been an event called Advent Adventures that is held on the first Sunday of Advent. Usually around 60 or more adults and children gather in Maudlin Hall to start off the Advent Season by making decorations to prepare their home for Christmas. While the crafting is fun, the fellowship that occurs around the table while everyone chats as they make their items is unforgettable. In 2020 things are definitely different, but the Discipleship Team wants to still provide the opportunity to make these Advent projects and enjoy talking with each other as you do so.

Box of Joy Subscription Box

This year we will be doing a BOX OF JOY subscription box. In other words, you choose which crafts you and/or your family members would like to make and you complete the order form. The materials for the projects that you have chosen, will be prepared and placed in a box, ready for pick-up at the church on Monday, November 23rd from 9 am – 12 noon or on Sunday, November 29th between 8:30 – 9:30 am (before church). If these pickup times do not work for you, please indicate on your order slip and we will make arrangements to get you your box.


How to do the Crafts

You may be asking a lot of questions, “What if I don’t know how to do something or my craft isn’t coming out the way I wanted? “ These questions will be able to be answered. The FPCB Discipleship Team wants to be sure that you are still able to Fellowship and share ideas as you craft. So there will be ZOOM links that will be set up for many of the projects. So if you are making a certain craft, you can join the ZOOM call for that project and talk with others as they craft. In addition, some of the more advanced projects or projects with different techniques will have YouTube videos to demonstrate those crafts step by step. ZOOM calls will be held on the afternoon of November 29th, the first Sunday in Advent. YouTube direction videos will be available at the time you pick up your BOX OF JOY.

For each craft all materials will be provided, which is why there is a charge listed for each project. In past years, it was a $5 donation per person. With BOX OF JOY you only pay for what you want to make. Prices range from FREE to $6.

So look over the picture list and make your choices today. Deadline to order your “BOX OF JOY” is Saturday, November 14th at noon. You may order your box in different ways. 1) Mail or drop your order form and check made payable to the church (electronic payments accepted). ( Please put “BOX of JOY” on the front of the envelope). Or you may email your choices to saralpabst@gmail.com or text to 813-294-0459 and send the check to the church or pay electronically. You may purchase as many boxes as you would like, maybe you have a friend or neighbor who might like to be a part of this event. BOX OF JOY will be a way that FPCB spreads JOY Box this Advent Season.
