Hello everyone!
 
Can you believe that we start Advent on Sunday?  It’s that time of year of waiting with joyful expectations as we prepare for the Christmas season.  As we look ahead to celebrating the birth of Jesus, our Lord and King’s first arrival on earth, we can also remember that we look also to His return, His second arrival. 
 
Advent is also a wonderful opportunity for families to celebrate, learn and rejoice together as we remember Jesus’ birth and His gift of salvation.  I am planning three “Families Together Advent” events for children and their parents (or grandparents or other precious adult or teen in their lives) to enjoy crafts, music, and Bible stories together.  We will learn some of the Advent music being played in worship and we might even have a chance to film some music or videos to share with the congregation during worship.  Please note, this is not a drop off program, but an intentional time for families to enjoy Advent focused activities together.  Let us rejoice in Jesus together as His people!
