Each lesson in the winter curriculum has a goal for the children: That they commit to be God's peacemakers; that they recognize moments of grace and share them with others; that they recognize God's surprising love in Jesus Christ; that they ponder and rejoice in the good news of Jesus' birth and, finally, that they rejoice like Simon and Anna who recognized God's promise in Jesus.
In October, Lillian and Matthew Joiner helped with handing out Bulletins and Nursery coordinator Ashley Adams kept them company.
October was a fairly quiet month as you were all busy with sports and school activities.
Our Halloween cookie/pumpkin decorating and card making event was well-attended by a multigenerational and creative group. Thank you to Norma for providing delicious cookies. She uses 5 pounds of butter and 3 ½ hours of her time and we are truly grateful. Almost every one of these was decorated (a few were consumed beforehand!) and they looked beautiful. We had plenty for delivery to homebound members.
Thanks to Marilyn, Alison and Jeannie for setup and cleanup help, Sue, Alison, Marilyn and Bertie for delivery help, and to Lorraine for managing the icing table.
We are still discussing the Advent season services. Stay tuned for up-to-date information as soon as it is available.
Be well as we rush towards Thanksgiving! Blessings,
