I hope all of you are having a great start to your Christmas season! This month we will be exploring Christmas traditions around the world! Be sure to ask your kiddo about St. Lucia's crown of light in Sweden. We will enjoy candle making, puffed rice balls and enjoying some delicious raisin buns on St. Lucia Day. We are excited to learn about the many fun traditions and interesting facts about Christmas around the world!

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:


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.


New and/or Gently Used winter wear including hats/mittens/scarves- There will be a box in the main hallway to collect these items. These items will be disbursed to those in need through the food pantries and to the North Dayton school we sponsor.


Gift cards- There are many families we are aware of that need help, but would never ask for it. We are collecting gas cards, grocery cards, and cards for Meijer, Target, a Walmart to donate to these families so that they can be relieved of a little stress and be able to provide for their families. I know that I have such joy when I am able to go out and buy for my children. By giving gift cards we are able to help other parents feel that joy as they go out and experience the hustle and bustle.


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!
