December Youth News

Advent is coming and the plans are in place! Prepare the way for a deeper more meaningful appreciation of Christmas by participating in the following events!

Over the next three weeks, you are invited to bring a box or two of wholesome snack bars, granola bars, nabs, or vienna sausages, for making snack kits to give to those who gather downtown for a meal each Sunday morning. We will deliver the snack bags on December 7 during Church School when we help Human Beans Together to serve a hot meal.  

Also, please let Ms. Anne-Bailey know ASAP if you are able to help with our annual Christmas pageant in worship.
