Advent Resources

IOLBC Beyond Ministry exists to help you succeed in growing spiritually beyond your time at camp. Sign up for our weekly blog which, during the Advent and Christmas season, will feature blogs with that focus. 

So many traditions surround our celebration of Advent and Christmas, but where do they come from? How did we get some of the songs we all know and love? Is there more to the biblical nativity story than a couple donkeys and a shining star? These are the kinds of questions that surround this next resource. Click on the link below and you'll be magically whisked away to a very special place called YouTube, specifically the camp's channel where a playlist is populated with all kinds of videos to help you get more meaning out of Christmas.
