Get ready for Advent by joining us at the Advent Workshop!
This event is designed for Kindergartners - Adults, and will take place during the formation hour.
Children will need the assistance of an adult, but adults of all ages are also invited to make an advent wreath for your home!
*Please note you only need to register once per family ($10). Additional wreathes may be purchased in this registration.
Families who choose not do make a wreath are welcome to join us at the card making station (free of charge).

Lighting the wreath and reading scriptures each Sunday of Advent is a wonderful way of anticipating the birth of Christ as we lead up to Christmas.

Extra Hands in Children's Ministry
Children's Ministry takes a few more hands than other age groups, to care and plan for our Infants-5th graders. If you can help with an event or two this year we'd love your participation. Let us know if there is something specific you are interested in or the time of year you are available.
If you'd like to help with the ongoing planning we invite you to serve on the committee. It meets 1/month on Wednesday night from 6-7pm.
