December 2012

Dear Families,
Advent means coming.  During the month of December we celebrate Advent and wait for Christmas. Even a small child knows that Christmas is coming.  It’s all around us…in the stores, on the radio and TV.  There is a lot of pressure as we wait for Christmas, we’ve got to get the decorations up, get the cards sent and the gifts bought, parties to plan and too many activities.
Take a Family break this Advent.  At our Redeemer we have set aside the Wed evenings in December for a time of Family Gathering.  Come enjoy a meal.  You don’t need to bring anything, just your family.  We’ll take some time to eat and relax; sing familiar Christmas songs and learn some new ones.  There’ll be a kid-friendly activity to do together.  A message of peace and joy and a blessing will complete our evenings.  Take a few moments in our hectic world for some Christmas joy and peace.

Each Wednesday dinner is served at 6:00pm.
Singing and activities to follow; everything done by 7:30pm
