Christmas Missions Collections 

There are many families in our area that need warm clothing for the winter. Here’s how you can help: 

  • Buy a package of new socks, gloves, mittens, scarves, and/or new underwear.
  • Bring your items to the drop off in the reception area on the first floor of the Children’s Wing.
  • Drop off between Sunday, November 26 and December 24 

We will celebrate at "Happy Birthday, Jesus" parties on Sunday, December 24. Happy Birthday Jesus parties help all children remember the reason we celebrate Christmas is not about the presents we get, but the greatest gift our Father gave to us through Jesus.


Candles - A Christmas Tradition

”Kids are hands-on. The more they can touch, see, feel, and experience the story of the gospel, the more it becomes real to them and the more they connect it to Christmas. 

Our family eats dinner by candlelight for the month leading up to Christmas. On December 1, we light a single candle. The next night, we light two candles. We add another candle each night, even if all we’re eating is grilled-cheese sandwiches. Honestly, sometimes I think the more humble the dinner, the more crumbs on the table, the more spills and human-ness of our family interaction, the more the candles highlight the beautiful mess that Jesus came to make whole. 

By the morning of December 25, my table looks like it might go up in flames with all those candles! However, this is a strong, tangible reminder of how the world has gone from darkness to light thanks to the arrival of Jesus. Even the youngest of minds can comprehend the difference between dark and light. Plus, it’s magic: eating by candlelight gives the tingles, the coziness, that elusive moment of wonder we so often seek at holidays. As we eat, my husband reads us a devotion or story that reveals our need for Jesus.”
