Christmas Program and Reception? Program is December 16 at 2:00 pm. Please make attendance a priority in the weeks prior to practice for the program. Please see the reception sign up at Sunday School if you are able to bring something.

 Special Christmas Collections – This is the time of year when many families think about giving gifts to various causes. This year we’d like to ask our Sunday School families to consider giving to one or more of the following. There is a wide variety ranging from purchased items, to the gift of time, to sharing/recycling.

  1. Baby Jesus’ Birthday Party – We are collecting bottles, diapers, wipes, pacifiers, formula, bibs, baby food, baby care items like lotion and shampoo. We will display them at the Christmas Reception and they will go to St. Stephen’s Food Pantry.
  2. Kennedy Adopt a School – Please go through gently used winter clothing items that your family has outgrown to give to the Kennedy Elementary School. They are asking for donations of used winter gear such as boots, hats, mittens, gloves and coats.
  3. Flu Care Bags – Help us work with Social Ministry to create 20 -30 Flu Care Bags for residents of the Triangle Ministry Neighborhood. Sunday School families are asked to bring:

 3 & 4 year olds: 2 cans of chicken noodle soup or vegetable broth, low sodium if possible

Kindergartners: 4 small packets of soda crackers (packet of 8)

1st & 2nd graders: 2, 32 ounce bottles of Gatorade (not diet or low calorie)

3rd-4th graders: 1 or 2 containers of disinfecting wipes

 If you have any of these items already on hand, feel free to donate them. We are just assigning grades to try to ensure we can stock each bag.

  1. Christmas Caroling – Debbie Diewald is organizing Christmas Caroling to neighborhood nursing homes. Please sign up on the page at Sunday School and more details will follow as she works them out. She is hoping to enlist the help of 5 adults who might be song leaders.

We have made some changes to snacks and singing that I emailed parents details about the decision-making process, but can you upload a new calendar and let people know about the changes to singing. Thanks!

Singing
We will continue to sing for the congregation in the fall and the spring, but at only 1 service each time. On April 28th we will sing before the 10:30 service. Revised calendars are available at church and on the website.
