As we prepare for the Christmas Eve services led by our students in Grades 1-8, here are a few notes:
- The church and school will not open until 3:00 on Christmas Eve.
- Students arriving before 3:45 must stay with their families until this time.
- Students participating in the 4:15 service should arrive at 3:45. Students in Grades 1-4 should report to their classrooms, ringers and singers in Grades 5-8 report to the robe room and then go to Fellowship Hall, and pageant participants not in the cross report to the sacristy.
- Students participating in only the 6:00 service should arrive at 5:30 and report to the rooms listed above.
- Children in Grades 1-4 are asked to wear dress clothes, but do not need to wear white on top and dark on bottom.
- Singers and ringers in Grades 5-8 are asked to wear comfortable dress shoes, and dress clothes that will not be too hot under their choir robe.
Students in Grades 5-8 participating in both services should go to Fellowship Hall between services for a snack. Students in Grades 1-4 participating in both services will have a snack brought to their classroom.
I am pleased to announce that Mrs. Kathy Brooks will teach 1
grade for the remainder of the school year. Welcome back, Mrs. Brooks! We are still in need of a part-time reading specialist to begin in January and complete the school year. Mrs. Beasley has moved, so we are also in need of a Director of Enrollment & Marketing. If you know of someone who may be interested in either position, please send them to
I wish you all a blessed and wonderful Christmas. May the Peace of Christ be yours during this Christmas season!
