Breakfast with Santa and Holiday House

We will host our annual Breakfast with Santa and Holiday House on Saturday, December 7th! Bring your family to enjoy a wonderful pancake breakfast complete with crafts and activities, followed by a visit with Santa. Later, if you would like time to get some holiday shopping done, let your children (infant to age 10) stay with us for an afternoon of fun at our holiday house while you go out and shop! Must register with Ida to save your spot :-)

Our next movie night will be Friday, December 13th. We will be showing Dr. Suess' The Grinch! It will be a fun night for the kiddos, and you can get in some shopping while they are having fun! Look for Kim's email for registration information.

Monthly Missions

This is the start of a very busy giving season. There are a lot of ways to give. Please do not feel obligated, but if you are interested in helping the following are opportunities we are focusing on:


Stockings/ Stocking Stuffers- We are collecting stocking stuffers for the United Methodist Children’s Home. There is a display in the lobby, please take a snowflake. It contains the child's name and wishes. Please return the items in a bag with the snowflake attached or in the bag so we know who the items are for. Our Parent Connection will help to fill the stockings and prepare them for delivery as part of our December missions. Thank you so much for your generosity!


New and/or Gently Used toys- There will be a table in the main hallway to collect these items. Please place new toys on the top of the table and gently used toys underneath (please do not bring toys that are broken or have pieces missing). These toys are used by the local food pantries to give to families who did not sign up in time to be on the Giving Tree.


Thanks so much for all of your support and help. This season is full of hope, peace, love and joy. It can also be full of stress. By helping others you will be helping to relieve some of the stress that the holidays can bring. Of course, this is all optional! The last thing we want to do is add stress to you! If you are able and willing to help in any way- THANK YOU!
