Children & Youth Christmas Plans

A Special Christmas Gospel Presentation
Many of you have been wondering what we are planning to do about our usual Christmas program. At this time, out of consideration for the safety and crazy schedules of many of our families this season, we are not having a standard "program" as in previous years. However, we do still want to give our children and youth the opportunity to contribute something meaningful and special to our Christmas services! Read the flyer below for instructions on how you and your family can get involved. 
(Sunday school will still meet as planned between services on Dec. 20th for a special all-ages lesson & Christmas celebration. Advent resources and devotional materials will be provided in the weekly emails throughout the season for you to use at home as well.)

Fall Fest Recap: Contest Winners!

BEST PAINTED PUMPKIN: Christian Eaton (2x champion!)
TRUNK WITH THE BEST CANDY: Anita Linneman & Brenda Marhanka

"Guess How Much Candy" Winner: Jack Estill, with a guess of 87 (the correct answer was 93!)

All winners, as well as the winners of our five raffle baskets, will be contacted this week about their prizes. Thanks to all who participated this year!

Watch our Facebook page for more photos of the event to be uploaded soon!
