With December fast approaching there are a few dates that we want you to be aware of.
First, Advent Wreaths. We'll be handing out Advent Wreaths (or candles for those of you who still have your wreaths from years past) on Sunday, Dec. 2nd. The first Sunday of Advent is Dec. 2nd.
Second, Christmas Program. 'Tis the season to set our sights toward the Christmas program. Parents, guardians, go ahead and breathe a sigh of relief, as this year's program requires virtually no memorization! (Really, go ahead and do a happy dance - I know I did). Because of that we'll rehearse during Chapel Time and only require two Saturday rehearsals (including the dress rehearsal).
Christmas Program Practice Schedule:
Third, Hanging of the Greens. Bring the family and come help decorate and prepare our church for the Christmas season on Saturday, Dec. 8th at 9:30 - 11:30 a.m. From your youngest to your oldest, we will have things to for all to help with. The kids are especially invited to get the tree set up in the Fellowship Hall, followed by some crafts. We hope to see you there!
Fourth, Caroling. Join us Sunday, Dec 16th at 4:45 p.m. for Christmas Caroling to the local care centers. We will meet at UMC at 4:45 p.m. drive to The Crossings, Evergreen around 5:30 p.m. and then to Tendernest around 6:00 p.m. After caroling we will return to UMC for some hot cocoa, chili and visiting. A signup sheet will be out on the table at church. Please be sure to sign up if you are planning on attending so we can make sure there is enough food.
We've experienced a slight hiccup in our ability to get the Advent wreaths handed out tomorrow, November 21st as originally promised. For various reasons, it's looking like we'll have to hand them out on the first Sunday of Advent, November 28th. You have my most sincere apologies - I prefer you have the wreaths well in advance, but what's a girl to do when life conspires against her?
For sure, without fail, we will get you the wreaths for that first Sunday in Advent, so please be sure to be there! If you want one and you miss the hand out day, just check in with me and we'll make it happen!
Reminder: The wreaths need to be returned after Christmas so that we can continue to share them each year.
See you in Sunday School, bring a friend!
