One of the many ways we help children understand that God became flesh and dwelt among us is to celebrate Jesus' birthday the way children might expect--with a birthday party! On December 13 and December 20, as we learn about Jesus' birth during Sunday school, we will celebrate with gifts for baby Jesus that will benefit others. Children and families can bring in gifts for one of our ministry partners:
1.) For Christian Assistance Ministries (CAM) we will be collecting small toys (balls, card games, books, etc.) for them to distribute this Christmas to the families they serve.
2.) For Locke Hill Elementary we will be collecting scarves, hats and mittens for children this winter.
We look forward to the celebration of Jesus birth this Advent season! For more information, please contact Debra Harris, firstname.lastname@example.org.
