Can’t believe that Advent is almost upon us? Neither can we, but the First Sunday of Advent will arrive right after Thanksgiving. To help us prepare and enjoy the season, we are offering an Advent Workshop for all ages this Sunday, November 20th, before worship.

Three-tables off alternative gifts, four tables of children’s crafts, and a station for making your own Advent wreath are just some of what you’ll find in Fellowship Hall this Sunday morning at 9:00. Adult and children’s classes are not meeting this week so all ages can gather to share the fun. If you have greens to contribute to wreath-making, please bring them along. Extra clippers would be welcome, too. Candles for the at-home wreaths will be available for purchase.

The Worship Ministry is offering something new this year. We thought it would be meaningful if everyone could help prepare the big wreath to be used in worship throughout the season. So we’re offering a station where everyone can add a strip of cloth or two to the Advent wreath to be used in worship. There will be light refreshments and plenty of coffee, so whether you’re a crafter, a shopper, or a watcher come and enjoy the fellowship.

Peace, Catherine
