Annual Christmas Caroling

December 15, 2:00-4:00 pm

We’ll be spreading some Christmas cheer as we sing Christmas Carols to our homebound members.  Festive attire is encouraged!  We’ll enjoy Christmas cookies our children made and cocoa as we gather in the Parish Life Center.  Then we’ll divide into caroling groups to carpool throughout the parish neighborhood zones of our congregation.  We’ll even have jingle bells our SONlight children made to add to the fun as we sing and ring-a-ling!

We hope you’ll join us for a joyful afternoon together!

RSVP here by Dec 8th or sign-up at the narthex counter

Our 8th-12th grade youth are invited to partner with Tricounty Family Ministries as they provide Christmas Brunch and help hand-out toys to needy children.   Our youth will help to sort donated toys and other items like bedding, baby items and coats.  Once the doors open, recipients will eat Christmas meal, receive a meal-to-go, and “shop” for needed items and gifts in the Tricounty Family Ministries donated items. Our youth, Christmas Elves, will help the children choose their toy from the donated items.  Lunch will be provided.  Youth are encouraged to wear festive attire. Adults are encouraging to volunteer too. We will carpool from church at 8:30 and retrun around 3:30.
