Advent events are coming!

   Let Family Ministry help you get into that Christmas spirit with two events coming up in December! First, on Sunday evening, December 8, from 4:00 to 6:00 PM, we will host a Christ Advent1 2019Wreath and Candy Nativity event for all of CUMC in the Fellowship Hall. At this event you can make your own fresh wreath to display in your home during the Christmas season, and kids can make their own Nativity scene out of candy! There will also be coffee, cookies, and a hot chocolate bar! The cost per wreath, including a white pillar candle for the center, is $15 (make as many as you want or bring friends). Pay an additional $5 if youAdvent2 2019 have children who want to make the candy nativities, that’s $5 total no matter the number of children you have making them! We do need everyone to sign up ahead of time for wreaths and candy nativities so we are sure to have enough supplies. You can sign up Sundays in November at the fountain area with a Family Ministry team member, or Wednesday evenings in November in the fellowship hall with Ashley Sickles. Deadline to sign up is Sunday, November 24, so get your name on the list now! Payment is due at the event, please have exact cash or check.

   Then, on Wednesday evening, December 11, we will be hosting Caroling and Cookies! We want adults and children to sing; everyone is welcome! This will be the last Wednesday evening Advent3 2019we meet for dinner for the year. So come eat at Wednesday Nite Cafe, and then adults and children will jump on the church buses at 5:15 PM and head over to Riverside to bless their residents and staff with Christmas caroling. At 6:00, we’ll head back to the church where the children (and adults too!) can enjoy some milk and cookies while listening to someone read about our Savior’s birth, the real reason we celebrate Christmas, from the book of Luke. This is sure to be a wonderful time to bless others and reflect on the significance of the Christmas season.
  Please feel free to contact me, Ashley Sickles (256-221-8423), with any questions. We hope to see you all at both of these special Christmas events!
