About the 2020 Advent–Christmas Theme

Through Jesus, you are a part of God’s family. This Advent, consider His great story anew. The Jesse Tree is filled with symbols that walk you through the story of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. Jesus is the Seed of Jesse’s tree. He is the Root of Jesse’s tree. He is the Life of Jesse’s tree. And He is the Firstfruit of Jesse’s tree (Isaiah 11:1).


Jesse Tree: Family Activity Kit

Gather your family together to learn Jesus’ genealogy. Follow God’s promises of a Savior starting with Adam and ending with Jesse’s roots. Help children understand the symbols of the Jesse Tree with Bible passages, ornaments, and other hands-on learning activities.

The kit includes:

  • devotional for adults
  • children’s picture book
  • 26 ornaments
  • a tree for displaying the ornaments
