There are a few Advent folders left. If you haven't gotten one yet, please check out the table in the narthex or email Kelly . Advent begins on December 1st. The folder includes a small packet for each week of Advent. You can do as much or a little as works for your family. This is a great way to continue Faith Formation as you prepare for Christmas!
Middle School Gathering Wednesday Dec 4th.
All middle school students are invited to hang out in the Fellowship Hall after classes on Wednesday December 4th. There will be a Christmas movie playing. Kids can bring games to play with friends. We'll have popcorn to snack on too! Event is from 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. Contact Anne with any questions.
The Church School Christmas program is in the works! Students will start learning music in class in the coming weeks. We will have two programs on Sunday December 15. Details about the program and the song lyrics can be found on the church website. It would be wonderful if you could review the songs with your kids! Please sign up for the program that you want to attend.
Need to get a little shopping done?
The high school youth are offering to watch the children of the congregation on Saturday December 14th between 10:00 am and 1:00 pm. This is following the dress rehearsal for the Christmas Program so parents can drop kids off and have a few hours to themselves. This is a fundraiser for youth attending the mission trip next summer. Free will offering will be collected. A full lunch will not be provided though there will be some snacks. Kids can bring a sack lunch if you choose. Contact Christina with any questions.
