DECEMBER 2021
Merry Christmas CREW families!

It is amazing to be in our new location! Even though it is still a transition time for our congregation as the other half of the building is constructed, the classrooms are already filled with excited and smiling faces . I can't wait to fill these walls with God's precious children throughout the year! I pray for you all this holiday season; prayers for your PEACE during this month of busy pace.

Joyfully,
Rachel Godin

Along with singing traditional Christmas songs on Sunday mornings, we have started learning this awesome upbeat Christmas song called "It's Christmas!" It's a great way to jump around and celebrate the season! Parents, don't be surprised if you dance along!

We have already kicked off the Advent season, with the first week of HOPE. Here is a weekly Advent devotional you can use at home with your children for the next three weeks leading up to Christmas Day.
