Annual Christmas Dinner 2011

Advent / Christmas Craft Workshop for Children

Sundays,  November 27, December 4 and December 18, we had an arts and crafts workshop for children, grandchildren and neighborhood children to attend.  Their crafts and decorating stockings will be hung around the church until Christmas morning.  Then on Christmas morning, December 25th when they come to our 9:30AM worship service, the children will be able to pick their stockings up which will be filled with goodies by Santa.  Anyone is welcome.  See also our beautiful church and sanctuary decorated for Advent and Christmas.  Pictures were taken by Marie and Michael Sincavage.
