You are invited to join the First Kids as we celebrate the beginning of our Christmas festivities together as a church family! The time for our Annual Advent Wreath Making is upon us. It is a guaranteed, amazingly wonderful, exciting experience for all involved.
One sweet passerby said “it even smelled like Christmas.” (And it’s so true!) This is a FREE event to bless each house with an Advent Wreath. We will take up donations for Heifer International again this year; and we hope to bless them with an entire Ark!!
Thank you for helping us be a blessing to others as we bless you.

Join us each week as we dig a little deeper into our Advent series by exploring how these traditional Advent themes are actually gifts from God that are mean to be shared with the world.
November 28 The Gifts of Hope and Love
December 5 The Gifts of Joy and Peace
December 12 The Gift of Emmanuel

Ornaments made by The Centenary children are in baskets outside the side door of the Sanctuary, in the Lobby of The Vine, and in the Narthex. The ornaments are for you to keep.
Each ornament lists a child’s name and two Christmas wishes. Take an ornament, write your name and the child’s name on the clip board by the basket, purchase a gift for $35 or less, wrap it, put the child’s name on the package, bring the present to the Welcome Center or the Church Office by December 10, and hang the ornament on your tree!
Your gift will be presented during our Angel Tree party. We tell the children that you don’t get this gift for being good, you get this gift because someone in the church is following the example of Christ and wants you to know that you are a child of God and they love you. Merry Christmas!
