A note from Cristi Armistead, Children's Minister
Whew! December arrived quickly! We have had a busy fall semester. We will be bringing the fall semester to a close in Awana on December 14.
We were able to pack 100 boxes from our Awana group with items your children brought and also items we purchased with our offerings. We are thankful for the opportunity to give to those who may be hearing about the Word of Christ for the first time through our small donations.
On November 30, I will be giving out a Christmas devotion that can be used Dec 1-25 based on Mercies of the Manger. I hope you will take this opportunity to spend a few moments each night discovering how the birth of Christ happened through years of prophecy and many different people being obedient to the Word. Each devotion will lead you to a person that played a vital role in the history leading to Jesus birth.
On December 14, we will have our final night in the fall semester of Awana with a Family Night. I hope you will take the opportunity to join your Awana on this night. We will have the reading of the Christmas story followed by a Family Night where you can join your child in making a Christmas craft. This will also be the last night to make up any verses missed in the fall semester.
On December 24, we will have our annual Christmas Eve Service at 5 p.m. Please make plans to join us for this special service.
There will be NO AWANA classes on Dec 21 or 28. We will resume Awana for our winter semester on January 4.
I pray each of you will take the opportunity to spend a few minutes each day worshiping the Savior and thanking Him for the sacrifice He gave to us. Make His presence your best present this season!
Wishing you a blessed Christmas and Happy New Year!
