The education and worship part of our children’s program will begin at 9:45 a.m. in the Undercroft. If you can, please join us and/or have your children join us as we begin the journey leading us to mystery of Christmas in the PreK-K classroom and as we explore the message of preparation in the season of Advent and the preaching of John the Baptist in grades 1-6.
A few additional bits of news:
- This week, we will be assigning planning parts and service roles for the Annual Children’s Pageant which will be part pageant/part prayer service as typically happens. Please try to have your children in attendance as much as possible during the month of December as this makes it easier for the grown-ups and the children. We will practice during Sunday school each week and will have extra practices on the morning of Dec. 14, the afternoon of Dec. 15 as well as the evening of Dec. 20. The pageant will be on Sunday, Dec. 22, 2019 at 5:30 p.m. with practice at 3:30 p.m.
- On Saturday, December 7, 2019 as part of the St. Thomas’s Annual Bazaar, I will be hosting a fundraiser Pancake Breakfast Buffet. The buffet will include pancake bar, sausage, eggs, fruit, and drinks. Ticket prices at the door will be $5 per adult/older child and $3 per child under 10, 2 years and younger free. Please come to enjoy good food and fellowship with family and friends. Then, stay to do some shopping at the Bazaar!
- All of St Thomas’s has been invited to attend Faith and Family Day at the UD Basketball game on January 12, 2019. CREW, our youth group, will be attending as our meeting that day. Please let me know as soon as you can via email or the sign up sheet on the Great Hall door if you plan to attend as well. Advance ticket prices will be depend on the size of our group.
I look forward to seeing you all soon!
