Things to have ready, if possible: clippers for the greens and an open table or floor space covered with newspaper for easy clean up.

We still need two families (weeks 3 and 4) to pre-record a short Advent lesson at home. The format: read the story, talk about it (prompts given), make a connection (suggestions provided), and offer a short prayer. Happy to talk more if there’s any questions!
✨Sharing Advent reflections
We are still looking for people to share an Advent reflection during the Advent devotion and wreath lightings from 6-6:30 on Sundays in Advent. There is a theme each Sunday and you can read a written reflection, share artwork and the process that inspired you to make it, share your faith story, or do something else. Please let me know if you are interested in sharing. Otherwise, please attend for the time of fellowship!
