ECLC KIDS YOUTH & FAMILIES 12.21.14

Sunday | Dec 21, 2014  |  Fourth Sunday of Advent

For several weeks ECLC kids, youth, teachers, and volunteers have been part of a great ADVENTure. With Melissa's guidance we have journeyed to Vietnam, Russia, and Mexico through crafts, songs, prayers, and dance. This coming Sunday, at both the 8:15 & 11 am worship services, we will share these traditions with our congregation, family, and friends, as a worshipful presentation, following the Advent liturgy.

Plan to attend one or both services unless Melissa is expecting you to be at both. Don't worry if you've missed a week or even two, since we will be following Melissa's lead, and the directions of our narrators.

If your child would like to wear a costume (angels, shepherds, wise men, animals, or holy family) for the 8:15 am service, plan to arrive 15 minutes early. Tables will be set up in the Fellowship Hall with costumes available for everyone.

During the Sunday School hour PK - K will meet as usual, beginning with opening music. GR 1 - 8 are invited to continue our ADVENTure with special activities in the Martin Room. Children attending the 11:00 am worship service will also be costumed at this time.

Here are the details for Sunday:

7:50 am 
GR 6 - 8 rehearse with Melissa in the Sanctuary.
