You will be working with your friends/family to help you along the way.

First things first. . .

Have fun, be ADVENTurous, take your time and enjoy the time you have

to be on this journey with a God who loves you so much he came to earth as Jesus!


There are 6 stops- at each stop/cache please take only 1 item PER HOUSEHOLD

My suggestion is to collect all 6 items and find a place in your home to place the items in order to remember

and have further conversations around advent


Please take some photos to document your groups adventure and either tag @unionchapelkids or send them to

marissa@ucvancouver.com


After reading these directions you will:

Need click on the graphic below below which will help take you to your first location by bringing up google maps.

Drive, run, skip, moonwalk to the location and then see below for clues to finding your first Cache.

What is a Cache? It's a collection of items stored in a hidden place.


Have fun and feel free to make stops for Hot Chocolate, Coffee, candy canes, and any other deliciousness along the way or bring them with out before you set out on your adventure.

River Maiden is between stops 2 and 3 if you need a suggestion for a sweet treat/hot drink place

Stop #1

Specific clues to location- also put map link

Once you have found the cache read and answer the questions below


WE BEGIN OUR JOURNEY. 

WHAT EXPECTATIONS AND HOPES DO YOU HAVE AS WE GET NEARER TO CHRISTMAS? WHAT IS SOMETHING YOU ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO DOING?  WHAT IS SOMETHING YOU ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO EATING? WHO IS SOMEONE YOU ARE EXCITED TO SEE?  WHAT ARE SOME TRADITIONS YOU HAVE THAT YOU ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO PARTICIPATING IN?


TAKE A SEED. SUCH A TINY THING, YET WITH SO MUCH POTENTIAL FOR GROWTH. LET IT REMIND YOU OF YOUR SEEDS OF HOPE, YOUR EXPECTATIONS FOR THIS CHRISTMAS. 

USE THE WORDS BELOW TO THINK ABOUT YOUR SEED AND ITS POTENTIAL. 


"THINGS GREAT HAVE SMALL BEGINNINGS. EVERY DOWNPOUR IS JUST A RAINDROP; EVERY FIRE IS JUST A SPARK; EVERY HARVEST IS JUST A SEED; EVERY JOURNEY IS JUST A STEP BECAUSE WITHOUT THAT STEP THERE WILL BE NO JOURNEY; WITHOUT THAT RAINDROP THERE CAN BE NO SHOWER; WITHOUT THAT SEED THERE CAN BE NO HARVEST."   - WILLIAM WILBERFORCE

“FOR THE PROMISE OF HARVEST CONTAINED WITHIN A SEED WE THANK YOU. FOR THE OAK TREE WITHIN AN ACORN THE BREAD WITHIN A GRAIN THE APPLE WITHIN A PIP THE MYSTERY OF NATURE GIFT WRAPPED FOR US TO SOW WE THANK YOU.”    -JOHN BIRCH, CELTIC PRAYER AND RESOURCES
