Begin Advent with an evening of warm soup (to calm your soul) and good fellowship to brighten your night. The Board of Christian Education invites you to this yearly Advent Event on Sunday, December
2nd beginning at 5:30 p.m.
A soup supper will be provided along with craft and decoration projects. Two service projects will be offered this evening. The first is a care package for college students preparing for exams. These will be mailed on the day after the event. The second is a care package for First Responders at the holidays. Many fire fighters, EMTs and police officers will be working on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Our
packages will be given to them on Christmas Eve/Day while they work, saying thank you to them for keeping us safe.
