Today we had a special Christmas worship led by our 8th graders. In the drama, students watched a Jr. High youth group struggle with a service activity and putting their hearts in the right place as they learned how to share their faith and help their neighbors. For you long timers, the drama was written by former 8th grade teacher, Mrs. Steffens. Ask your child to recall their favorite scene and why it was special. You may also take the opportunity to ask if they have one thing they want to do to help others and make this Christmas especially meaningful.
Thanks to Rebecca's mom for planning our Christmas party and bringing goodies. Thanks to all the moms who popped in and helped out as well. They kids had a lot of fun!
I pray you and your family are able to have a restful and worshipful holiday. Jesus came to bring peace, love, and joy. May we reflect the wonder of knowing he saves us!
Have a blessed Christmas!
