Lifespan Religious Education
We begin December with the full activity of the season - Advent and Hanukkah lessons, Deck the Halls, Craft Fair, holiday singing, wreath sale, and holiday donations - but also with the intention of being a respite from holiday busyness. As you need to, just be present in the sanctuary or the RE wing. Embodying the spirit of the season means focusing on the connections we have with the people in this community and the peace we find here. I invite you to participate in all the fun and find moments of pause.
Please see the following six (6) announcements:
1) This Sun Dec 3

2) Bring a Gently Used Children’s Book to Donate This Sun
K-5th grade children are asked to bring a book that was or is special to them to share during Children’s Worship and then donate to the Ecumenical Food Pantry for families who do not have gifts for the holidays.
Gently used toys and new/like-new stuffed animals are also needed.
Thank you for bringing joy to families in need this season.
