Selfies, Lessons and Carols this week... Pageant Next!


Hello Parents and Teachers!

Selfies with Santa!!!!- I am looking specifically for Christmas decorations we can borrow right now. Between Selfies with Santa and our Summer Camp we are already taking up two classrooms!! We have no more room! So, if you have items you could lend us for the duration of the event, we would love to have those! Just remember to put your name on all those items and pick them up before 3 pm Saturday December 7th. Because!!!....

Lessons and Carols is Saturday, December 7th and Sunday, December 8th! We want to have the church looking beautiful as we invite the community in to hear the Service of Lessons and Carols at 4:30 pm both evenings. There is no 5:00 service or youth group on Sunday, December 8th due to Lessons and Carols so I am challenging the youth to come participate in Lessons and Carols. We can use extra hands for the reception after each service. We can also use some babysitters to hang out in the nursery in case we get some antsy babies. I know this is a busy time for everyone but think about all the people who choose to come to Lessons and Carols as part of their busy schedule. We have the privilege of being chosen by these folks, lets honor their choice with our service.

Christmas Pageant! - I know many of you have been asking about the pageant and yes! It is coming!! We have a practice for the readers after Church on Sunday. This might take 30 minutes… it is really just a chance for the kids to have their preliminary read throughs and figure out the seating arrangements. Then on Saturday December 14th, we will have a practice for everyone from 9-11 am. This is a chance for our teachers to figure out who is wearing what on pageant day. We will also have another opportunity for everyone to practice Away in a Manger. Parents, it would be helpful if you practiced this with your kids at home. You may have received a sheet with the lyrics if not here are the words again:

Away in a manger, no crib for His bed The little Lord Jesus lay down His sweet head The stars in the sky look down where He lay The little Lord Jesus, asleep on the hay

If you want to practice with your kids, I recommend the Pentatonix version… it is similar to what we sing in church.

Whole Sunday School Christmas Party- On December 22nd during Church we are going to have a whole Sunday School Christmas party with story time, crafts, and of course, snack. If you would like to help, please let me know. When doing these crafts, it is always helpful to have extra hands.

Family New Years Eve Party- Gaga Party from 6-9 pm with pot luck dinner and desserts, board games, crafts, and a fun movie on the big screen! This years New Year’s Eve Party is going to be Epic!! Sign up will be in the Foyer in the coming week.

See you Sunday! Manda
