What a great time everyone seemed to be having, from the singing to face painting and visits with Santa. We are so thankful for the many who planned this evening full of worship, interaction and even entertainment, and for all the children who were able to attend. We started in the sanctuary with songs to celebrate the season followed by a fun puppet show by the ABY. Loved the angel and multitude of heavenly host appearing there in the show, great job ABY!! We finished upstairs with singing by glow sticks alone. I know the kids really enjoyed this and it truly was silent, but for the sweet sound of their little and mighty voices. Next, off to the party! The play dough, face painting, snacks, crafts, shopping and can't forget Santa. A big thank you to all who donated items for the shopping, helped with wrapping, provided and prepared food, set up the different activity stations, and a very special high five to Santa and Mrs. Clause . . . "Let's give thanks to the Lord above for Santa Clause is coming tonight!" The children left with bright, cheery spirits, and I know the adults did as well. Such a gift God has given us every day with these little lives and his very own son! Merry Christmas everyone.
