Sunday School Christmas Service Resources

This year we will be doing a traditional Children’s Sunday School Christmas Service called “A Sola Christmas Service,” which is a reflection on the Reformation through Martin Luther. It will take place during our regularly scheduled 5:00 Worship Service on Saturday Evening, December 16 (Snow day is December 17). We would love all kids to be a part of this experience.

**There will be a group of angels again this year. Angels will state the traditional line “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” Angels will dress in white. We have a limited number of costumes for those that are interested. Contact Jeff if you are interested.

**We are looking for some volunteers to help with Sunday School Christmas Service this year. We need volunteers to help get kids from place to place. We need 1-2 people that could help with actions to songs (this would involve coming on Sunday mornings too for when we practice)
