LIGHTING THE ADVENT WREATH @ 10:30 AM
This Sunday, the children will gather in the Narthex to process in to light the Advent Wreath. Clare and Michelia are the Lighters and Readers for this Sunday. After the Wreath is lit we will go to the Education building for class. Some children will also try on Costumes for the Pageant on this day.
These are the readings for the First Sunday of Advent: Psalm 122, the First Reading is Isaiah 2:1-5, the Second Reading is Romans 13:1-14, and the Gospel is Matthew 24:36-44.
“It made me glad to hear them say, ‘Let’s go to the house of the Lord. “ ~ Psalm 122:1 (Contemporary English Version)

NEW STUDENTS – FIRST VISIT
Hello Parents and Guardians – if this is your student’s first time with us, please arrive a few minutes early to register your child.
We follow safe church practices, so its important that we know who’s in attendance, have parents(s) or guardian(s) check children in-and-out, and provide us us with any important details including contact info in the event of an emergency. Teachers are happy to help 🙂
Education building doors are locked 10 minutes after church service begins for added security…so give yourself a little extra time this first day. Teachers will be available to offer assistance to parents and children with registration, questions or any special needs – just introduce yourself and they’ll take it from there. Thanks so much and we look forward to meeting you!
