Good Morning Parents and Teachers!
3pm Christmas Eve Service- We are looking for four students to read for the 3 pm Christmas Eve service. We are going to be splitting the Gospel reading into three parts so I need three younger students to read that. Then later in the service I am going to need an older student to read the prayers. If this is something your child would be interested in doing and you are going to be at the 3 pm Children’s service on Christmas Eve; please let me know!
SHYG- In January we are going to begin meeting from 7-8:30 on Sunday Nights. We are also going to begin our Mentoring Program. Those students who have expressed an interest in working with a mentor have been assigned. I have requested the Mentors speak with the parents first so you can expect a call or a ‘hello’ during church.
Christmas Pageant- This Sunday is the Christmas Pageant!! There is one more practice on Saturday from 9am- 12pm. Angels and Sheep please try to be there in the beginning so we can practice walking up the aisle and where to go on the altar. If we can do those quickly then you guys can leave early!
Volunteer Opportunities: During Christmas Break we are going to be spending time repainting the classrooms upstairs. If you are interested in helping please let me know. One of our Young Adults, Jackie Cross, is the new volunteer coordinator for Seabury in Bloomfield. She is looking for new volunteers to do IT work, go on room to room visits, and participate in recreation activities. Volunteers must be 16 and older. If you are interested in volunteering please let me know and I will get you in contact with Jackie.
We Are The Children Toy Drive- Please bring all toys in by Saturday. We use these toys as part of the Christmas pageant and it is helpful to have them in church before the pageant begins.
Calendars: sales begin this Sunday and go through the end of the year. Find your new calendar in the Narthex!
