Watching the children rehearse for the pageant, I am reminded of the increasing vitality of our children's and youth ministries.
New families arrive on nearly a weekly basis. The Sunday School attendance peaked this semester at 27 students. Families with young children appreciate the flexibility of the option of a shorter 9:00 am service in the Chapel or the full 10:30 am service in the Sanctuary. As to the renewed Youth Group, partnering with St. Paul's Episcopal Church has been a blessing. Regular attendance ranges from 6 to 12 at biweekly gatherings.
Please join us for this year's Children's Christmas Pageant today at 9:00 am in the Parish Hall.
As we prepare for the birth of Jesus Christ, let us give thanks for our children and teens.
