Thank you to all of our families who allowed their children to join us for Christmas for Kids! And thank you to all of our volunteers who gave so much time and energy to make the day a wonderful success!
In music, crafts, snack, lesson, and games, they were able to spend a few hours reviewing and learning about God's love for them. The love they enjoy was the same love shown to the Wise Men (Magi) who came to worship the Savior from a far-away country.
Because of Jesus, we have been rescued from all that sin meant for us. Our punishment has been replaced with eternal life. Praise God for his blessings!
If your family was able to join us for our celebration, thank you! If not, we pray you'll be able to join us soon.
