Where has the year gone? I can't believe we are in the last month of 2018 and already scheduling things for 2019. I say it every year, but I really think this year went by fast. Family Advent guides were emailed out yesterday and paper copies are available on the kids check-in desk. I encourage you to take time to spend a few minutes with your children, celebrating the reason for the season.
I am excited for the month of December at Hallmark. We have so many exciting opportunities for your family to celebrate Christmas together as well as connect with your church family. I look forward to seeing our awesome Hallmark Kids participating in so many different aspects of worship.
Our annual Gingerbread House Activity is Saturday, December 8th at 9:00 am. Come enjoy a fun morning with your family and your church family, creating a gingerbread house masterpiece. Click here to register your family, so we know how many houses to buy!
You will not want to miss our kids present the Christmas Musical "For the Glory of the King" on Wednesday, December 12th at 6:30 pm. They have been working hard these past few months and while they have been practicing, they have also learned the true meaning of Christmas.
Sunday, December 16th we will be having Family Worship and our Manger Offering. Please have your child bring back their m&m tubes full of quarters as we have a special time to place them in the manger. This year our offering will go towards the Christmas party in Camargo as well as help pay for the house and furnishing for a single mom Reynosa. Spend time with your child these next few weeks, not only explaining why we are collecting money, but also praying for the family.
We will not have Wednesday night services on December 19th, December 26th, or January 2nd.
Sunday, December 23rd we will have a Family Worship service at 10:30 am. We will not have connect groups or a nursery that morning. All kids are invited to wear their Christmas Pjs. Come early at 10:00 am for milk and cookies before the service. You might even see Pastor Jon wearing elf ears!
Monday, December 24th we will have a special candle light Christmas Eve service at 6:30 pm. Make plans now to worship with your family and celebrate the birth of Jesus.
Sunday, December 30th we will have not have Connect Groups, but will have a Family Worship service at 10:30 am. (no nursery) Our church family will be celebrating the Martin Family as they have answered God's calling to begin a church plant in Wyoming. Tyler will be preaching and we will have a reception after the service for Tyler, Ashley, and Ava.
I hope that you have a great month. We have had a great year in Hallmark Kids and I can't wait to finish it out celebrating the birth of Jesus together!
