Children’s Spiritual Exploration for January

Hi Everyone,

This month has been very busy with Faith in Action projects.

On December 10th and 11th children and youth bought presents for 14 children in four families this year from the generosity of this congregation and Laura Ward who celebrated her sister’s birthday, our own Miriam Green, with a special gift to the fellowship.  Hearing back from the adults on how thoughtful the children were in selecting the gifts for their families were so heartfelt and sincere.  Thank you to the Simons, Davis, Sutherland, Hughes families for bringing their children/grandchildren to purchase the gifts. 

Shopping was at three different times, and we don’t have pictures from everyone when we went to print.  We were also thinking of the Hooper’s as we were shopping and hope they will rejoin us next year.  We had pizza lunch and wrapped all the presents and delivered them back to the Sports Center and Methodist Church for them to deliver to the families to make Christmas a little more special for those in need. Missing in pictures are David and Louise Hughes with Darby and Noble and Jill Sutherland and Ella Hunter.

Our multigenerational pageant called “Rebirth of the Sun” written by Rev. Ma and acted out by children and adults in a wonderfully funny pageant on December 18th followed by a cookie exchange and cookie decorating by the children.  A fun day was had by all.
